Nantucket Beaches - Tom Nevers
It is said that Native American Tom Nevers searched for whales from a high cliff overlooking the south shore and nearby east end on this beautifully rustic section of the island. From rolling expanses of open space to pitch pine and scrub oak barrens, Tom Nevers maintains the dual distinction of being remote yet readily accessible to the island's charms. Just off the Milestone Road, the ocean is never far from any residence in this quiet corner of the island. Options for island living are varied, from grand oceanfront properties to secluded cottages on country lanes. The storied village of 'Sconset is just down the road, with the public Siasconset Golf Course (established in 1894 and one of the oldest courses in the country) along the way. Just across Milestone Road is the Windswept Cranberry Bog, at one time the largest single bog in the world, and now the site of the island's annual Cranberry Festival.
