Some ocean beaches are ideal for surfers and boogie boards. Some are more protected areas better for young children. There are beaches known to be hot spots for surf casting fishermen, bird watchers, wind surfers, kayak paddlers and even some remote beaches for 4-wheel drive enthusiasts.

Nantucket Fine Dining

There are fine dining restaurants on almost every street in the downtown area of Nantucket. The island has become a destination for food enthusiasts, especially in the past few years. There are restaurants along the beaches, with incomparable sunsets; restaurants where multi-course menus are a complete sensory experience; and restaurants who have earned international accolades, and boast Michelin starred chefs. A select few of Nantucket’s fine dining restaurants are open year-round, offering up appreciated culinary treats during the deepest winter months, but most restaurants will open for Nantucket Daffodil Festival Weekend in late April, and close between Columbus Day (mid-October) and Christmas Stroll (early December).

The Bean Cafe

Wine & Spirits on Nantucket

Nantucket’s favorite stops for the widest selection of fine wines, liquor and beer; whether you are looking to purchase for a party, special event, or just for fun. The legal age for purchase and consumption of alcoholic beverages is 21 on Nantucket; proof of age is required and strictly enforced with a valid photo ID requested at bars, nightclubs, and restaurants, so it’s a good idea to bring one or more forms of valid ID when you go out. Do not carry open containers of alcohol in your car or in any public area that is not zoned for alcohol consumption. The police can fine you on the spot. And nothing will ruin your trip faster than getting a citation for Driving Under the Influence.
