Cape & Island’s Beaches

Nantucket is a very special island that offers some of the finest shopping, beaches and outstanding restaurants in the world.

Brant Point Light

Brant Point Lighthouse was built in 1746.  It was the second lighthouse established in the American colonies.

Brant Point Lighthouse rests at the end of a spit of sand, which forms the west side of the entrance to Nantucket Harbor. Owned by the U.S. Coast Guard, Brant Point Light is an active aid to navigation and is closed to the public. The grounds are open to the public.

Great Point Light

Great Point Light (also known as Nantucket Light) was built in 1785. The lighthouse sits several miles up a thin area of beach.

It is located on the extreme northeastern tip of Nantucket, in the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge. Public access to the tower and surrounding grounds is allowed from the park's Rangers on many of their tours during the summer months.

Sankaty Head Light

The Sankaty Head Light is a lighthouse located on Nantucket. It was built in 1850 and was updated in 1965 to be fully automated.  Sankaty Head Lighthouse is not open to the public but grounds are open to the public.

Whaling Museum

The Whaling Museum features exhibits of whaling equipment, ship models, scrimshaw, portraits, logbooks and the skeleton of a 43-foot (13m) sperm whale. The Whaling Museum is housed in a restored 1847 candle factory with a rooftop observation deck.  It is located right in the heart of downtown.

Nantucket Life Saving Museum

The Nantucket Life Saving Museum is devoted to the people who braved the seas and dangerous shoals around Nantucket to save the lives of sailors in trouble. The museum houses a collection of marine artifacts and life-saving equipment including a Mass Humane Society surfboat and its horse-drawn carriage, Lyle and Hunt guns and a restored early U.S. Coast Guard beach cart that the staff used to demonstrate the beach drills.

Maria Mitchell Aquarium

The Maria Mitchell Aquarium showcases the marine life that inhabits Nantucket's salt marshes, harbors and coastline such as mollusks, crustaceans and finfish. There are touch exhibits for children and periodic excursions to local marine environments.

The Maria Mitchell Observatory

The Maria Mitchell Observatory was founded in 1908, today it operates two observatories: the Vestal Street Observatory and the Loines Observatory. Features of the observatory include an outdoor scale-model of the solar system, a planar sundial, sunspot observations (when clear), and a permanent astronomy exhibit.

Coatue Wildlife Refuge

The Coatue Wildlife Refuge is a unique and pristine environment which contains over 390 acres of barrier beach that shelters Nantucket Harbor from the Sound.   It is home to numerous rare plants and birds as well as having some of the best beaches on the island.

Cisco Brewers

Here on Nantucket we have a Winery, Brewery, and Distillery.  Nantucket Vineyard opened in the early 1980’s as a small project of the Long Family.  There is a Winery, Brewery and Triple Eight Distillery. All three businesses are constantly evolving, and they now produce a wide variety of world-class wines, beers, and spirits. Come out and enjoy our Nantucket haven- just prepare yourself in case your mind blows up from all the awesomeness.
