Every year the sands shift at Madaket Beach. Some years the beach is narrow, others it can be quite wide and 4 wheel drive accessible. This is one of those years. You can drive on and make your way out toward Smith Point. Deep sand is a caution, let the air out of your tires for traction. This beach faces southwest so sunsets are spectacular. A great picnic area. There are several access points to the beach. Some have parking.

While it has been one of favorite beaches; the sunset is worthy of the price of admission to visiting this wonderful island.

we enjoyed this beach day, the beach is stunning but eroding, what a shame... huge waves and riptides so be careful, I'd pick a different beach if I had small kids

Took the Wave over to catch the sunset. Fun atmosphere. Get food from Millie's early if that is in your plan. Caught the first Wave bus back after sunset with no problem.
