2023 Best Family-Friendly Activity, Nantucket

Children’s Beach

As its name implies, Children’s is a pint-size beach perfect for the entire family and delightful in its proximity to the cobblestone streets of the historical downtown. Lifeguarded — and with restrooms! — the shoreline comes complete with a grassy park, a playground, a bandstand, and the Surf, a kid-friendly restaurant where your crew can eat grilled cheese and hot dogs to their heart’s content while watching the ferries come in and out of the harbor. We can almost guarantee everyone will fall asleep on the ride home.
