A beautiful beach and amazingly quiet, considering its location so close to town and with easy parking. Terrific views, wonderful sand and perfect for walks along the beach. Water delightfully warm for swimming even in October.

Beach looks lovely for families. Food is soooooooo bad. Ordered fish and chips Looked and tasted undercooked. Bland, bland, bland. Salt didn't help the taste. Hope they change cooks for next year. Have fond memories of years past.

Family friendly beach with gentle surf, warm (for Nantucket) water and nice sandbars to walk out to. There are some sharp shells though, so water shoes are advisable (my son sliced his toe open). Also, the restaurant at the beach can get really busy so...More

Jetties Beach is a nice place. The proximity to town makes this a go to place. We rode our bikes here and locked them up in the bike racks. The blue carpet pathway up to the beach is helpful. The sand is soft and fun...More
