Nantucket has miles of pristine, uncrowded beaches. You can choose to swim in the calm waters of the harbor, close to town, hang out in the gentle waves of the north coast, or venture out to the far reaches of the southern shore for great surf.
Please Note: Surf swimming is for the experienced swimmer only, and there are times when the surf is not safe. Beware of strong rip currents, which occur before and after storms and can carry a swimmer far away from the beach. To ensure a fun and safe day at the beach, only swim at beaches that have lifeguards and never swim alone.
