Nantucket Beaches - Cliff
It's no surprise that the original settlers chose this location as the first Nantucket town. The vistas go on forever from your vantage point high above Nantucket Sound, where the warm bathing beaches of the north shore lie waiting at your feet. To the west, Dionis gives way to Madaket and eventually to Tuckernuck. To the immediate east, the harbor's jetties lead towards town. And there, far to the north, Great Point Light stands steadfast on the horizon. Its prime location makes the Cliff readily accessible to all areas of the island, with convenient bike path connections to either Madaket or Town. The ambience is heightened by unspoiled conservation lands, including the former Tupancy Links golf course, with its sweeping views of the Sound. The Cliff is where you watch your ship come in.
