Madaket Beach

At the far western end of the island, Madaket is a popular beach, especially for watching incredible sunsets. The surf can be heavy so check beach conditions. There are some lifeguards and restrooms but no food service, so bring a picnic or visit Millie's Restaurant a short walk away. There is some parking.

Madaket Beach is accessible by bike via a 5.5 mile paved bike path, or take the NRTA shuttle bus (seasonal).

Smith's Point

At the very end of Madakat accessible only by four-wheel drive vehicles, permit required. Sometimes the point is breached by waves to create Esther Island.
