Siasconset, commonly known as Sconset, is located at the eastern end of Nantucket island about eight miles from town. Originally a fishing village, this charming and picturesque community combines modest, rose-covered cottages with elegant new homes.The ocean beach is within walking distance to the many visitors staying in homes and rentals in town of Siasconset, and is accessible to visitors by bike or NRTA bus service. Parking is available but very limited. A wide beach provides plenty of space on soft sand and often heavy surf.At one end of town, a public trail called Sconset Bluff Walk, provides a scenic stroll following the coastline, high up on a bluff, providing amazing views. The trail no longer reaches Sankaty Lighthouse directly, but the lighthouse is accessible on a short walk down Baxter Road.Also, across the street from Sconset Beach is the recently renovated Codfish Park Playground.

'Sconset Beach is less crowded than other beaches on the island and there is plenty of room on the beach (depth, length) to spread out and claim your own spot. The breeze is just right to keep you cool on hot days. There are sometimes seals for entertainment. The beach is easy to walk to from 'Sconset so we often bring food and beverages. There is also a playground close to the beach for those with children.

Easy to access and a fun bike ride past the Serengeti. Cute houses and shops, a short trip to check out the light house as well.

Quiet and sunny. Make sure to watch the seals swim by!
