NRTA seasonal shuttle bus. This very popular beach is accessible by bus, bike, or foot. As the name indicates there is plenty of surf at this beach. Stay late into the afternoon and after 5 you watch the fisherman surf casting from the beach. Parking is available.

The paths through the dunes spill onto a spacious area of Surfside beach that is well away from the lifeguards and children to the North. To the South is Miacomet point and the sunsets are often dotted with fisherman shore casting. This is classic Nantucket.

Surfside is very cool...wide open beach and great surf depending on the day. Great for walking and there are life guards if you have kids or are a nervous swimmer. Fun beach and if its crowded there is plenty of room to just walk down and find a spot.
