“My favorite beach on Nantucket - beautiful views of the epic homes on Cliff Road, calmer and warmer waters than the South shore, and a long shelf so that kids can wade out far from the beach. Sunset is excellent for picture taking.”

Park
“In full disclosure, this snack bar and gift shop at Children's Beach is Rebecca's business, but this little spot downtown is a great place to bring the kids. Sporting a great view of the harbor this spot is a must visit for great food and a great beach. Kids enjoy the playground and grassy field and on Friday's it's a great spot for live music, karaoke and a movie, all free! And of course we have fresh popcorn too. Sundays the town hosts free concerts there as well.”
