People’s Choice: Best Island Beach

People’s Choice: Best Island Beach

Last week, we kicked off our first Instagram Stories Poll and it was a success, thanks to you!

In the spirit of good, Cape Cod summer fun we asked locals to chime in and vote for their favorite beach on Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.

“Beach Baby, Beach Baby, give me your hand… give me something that I can remember… just like before, we can walk by the shore in the moonlight.”

The voting was swift and exciting… on each island we tallied the top 4 and this is what you came up with:

Nantucket’s Top Four Beaches: Cisco, Nobadeer, Madaket, Surfside

Martha’s Vineyard Top Four Beaches: Katama, South Beach, Norton Point, Lucy Vincent

The voting was intense and then we had two final contenders for each island:
Nantucket: Cisco versus Madaket
Martha’s Vineyard: Katama versus South Beach (so the funny thing here is that they are the same beach – oops)


The Best Island Beaches as voted by the people, for the people are Cisco and South Beach!

Cisco Beach is a Nantucket Land Bank property. It is located on the south shore of the island, 4 miles from where we dock. Known for its soft sand and is extremely popular with surfers. Known for its soft sand and rip currents, this beach is very popular with surfers and young adults.

South Beach aka Katama Beach is located in Edgartown, about 11 miles from where we dock. One of the most popular beaches on the island, it is both open to the public and free. Facing the Atlantic Ocean on the south side of the island, you’ll find fine surf on one side and a protected salt pond on the other.
