Madaket Beach is beautiful, but the surf and tides can be rough. I wouldn't recommend this beach for young kids or poor swimmers. Even on a hot day with a lifeguard few people were swimming. Looking out at the ocean is breathtaking, but turn back to the beach and you'll see the remains of homes (wires, some debris and PVC... 更多
Even an overcast day is something to be remembered! It is never packed, has plenty of room to spread out, relax, and enjoy the peace and quiet.
We took the bus over to Madaket on a cold, overcast day. After a great meal at Millie's we went down to get a view of the beach. It wasn't until hours later that we finally left.

The drive out rates a *10* all by itself, especially passing between Long Pond and North Head Long Pond, and then turning right on Ames Avenue and taking in the oft-photographed, weirdly wonderful house on stilts. Settle in... 更多
We went out to Eel Beach with Nantucket Surfcasting (James) and had a great time. Caught a 36" Striped Bass from the shore. That was the only fish we caught the first day, but my boys loved is so much (ages 13-14) we rented poles and went back for a full day. 7-8 Blue Fish were caught that day, all... 更多
