This is one of the most popular beaches on Nantucket. Very family friendly though the surf can get heavy at times. Some hotels offer shuttles to Surfside.
Located at the end of Surfside Road, a three-mile ride on paved bike path or take the NRTA Shuttle in season. Easy to park your car or bike. Plenty of surf, wide beach is good for picnics, beach games, and surfcasting. Lifeguard, restrooms, showers, public phones, food service.
Kite flying west of Surfside Beach is acceptable; for safety reasons, please do not fly kites east of Surfside toward the airport. Due to the number of people who frequent Surfside Beach during the day, it is inadvisable to fly kites during the peak beachgoing hours.
