Brant Point Beach

Nantucket Beaches

Easy walk or bike ride from town. No lifeguard. Strong current and high boat traffic. Though technically a swimming beach – Brant Point is much more suited to sitting a watching the harbor traffic. Scenic beach with Brant Point Lighthouse, the second oldest lighthouse in the US. Here is where to go to wave goodbye to friends and family departing on the Steamship.
Brant Point is one of the most photographed spots on the island and is a special favorite for wedding photos. It is also possible to have your wedding right at Brant Point, but be sure to get permission from the Coast Guard.
