Young's Bicycle Shop map of 'Sconset

Map of Siasconset ('Sconset)

Siasconset, or just 'Sconset to the locals, is at the eastern end of Nantucket. You'll find quaint little cottages as well as cliffside mansions, a public beach, and the famous Sankatay Head Lighthouse.

'Sconset is one of the most popular destinations for visitors, as the sleepy little village with expansive ocean views is perfect for a sight seeing bike ride.

There are two paved bike paths that lead to 'Sconset from Town, the Polpis Rd and Milestone Rd paths.

You'll also be able to find a bite to eat at Claudette's Sandwiches or the 'Sconset Market (both open seasonally) to fuel your ride back.

Young's Bicycle Shop map of Madaket

Map of Madaket

Madaket lies at the westernmost end of Nantucket and is another extremely popular spot for visitors and locals alike.

It's a great spot to catch the sunset over the water, although it's not our favorite place to swim.

In season you'll be able to grab lunch or dinner at Millie's Restaurant and pick up an ice cream at Millie's market.


Young's Bicycle Shop map of Surfside on the south shore of Nantucket

Map of Surfside

Surfside is probably the most popular beach destination on Nantucket. There's plenty of beach to explore, as well as a typically safer current than the beaches at the ends of the island.


Young's Bicycle Shop map of Cisco

Map of Cisco

East of Madaket is Cisco, is another popular places for beachgoers. Some of the best surfing on the island is by Cisco beach, so you'll find plenty of visitors and locals alike there.

On your way to or from the beach, there are plenty of options for food and drinks at Bartlett's Farm, Cisco Brewers, and 167 Raw.


Young's Bicycle Shop map of Tom Nevers on the south shore of Nantucket

Map of Tom Nevers

Tom Nevers is located just west of 'Sconset, and largely comprised of residential homes.

There is a public beach there, but we recommend areas like Surfside and Cisco over Tom Nevers when it comes to enjoying the beach. The beach at Tom Nevers is not as wide or clear, and there are no amenities.

That being said, there are usually much fewer people if crowds are your primary concern.

Young's Bicycle Shop map of Monomoy by the Nantucket harbor

Map of Monomoy

Most visitors never make it to Monomoy, a small area east of town near the Nantucket harbor.

There's no dedicated bike path on Monomy road, and the public beaches there are mostly used by locals launching their small watercraft.

Just about everywhere is pretty on Nantucket an Monomoy is no exception, but you won't miss much by choosing to explore other areas.
