About

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.
