This is a great place to take pictures of Nantucket harbor. Be sure to wear surf shoes b/c there are some sharp rocks and shells on the walk to the water. A good place for the kids to pick up scallop shells and lady slippers....More

We walked from Jetties beach to Brant Point with my dog and it was a beautiful walk by beautiful homes. Brant Point Lighthouse is a great photo opportunity and has great views of the water.

If you have a car, easy to get to. Walking from town is a little bit of a hike but a nice spot. Actual lighthouse doesn't provide much info but the area is nice to view ships come in.

The light house is a really nice spot for a photo. It wasn't warm enough for the beach but the flowers on the dunes and the lighthouse was beautiful.

My wife insisted we walk to this lighthouse which I resisted but ultimately agreed to. So glad I did, great shot for pictures and time with the family. Don't miss this place while in Nantucket.

Unsure about that but made us wonder as well. It would make an excellent B&B or other type rental. What a location.
