On the western end of Nantucket, you will find a laid-back area known for its sunsets, pristine beaches and one of Nantucket’s best summer restaurants. Approximately six miles west of Town, Madaket offers sandy trails, flowering moors and miles of coastline. While this neighborhood offers limited retail and grocery amenities, it more than makes up for it with its incredible landscape and more casual vibe.

If you are looking for the best spot on Nantucket to take in the sunset, head to the west end. Don't forget to order take-out from Millies to enjoy on the beach. The surf can be heavy in Madaket and when the big waves roll through, this is a prime surfing spot. Madaket Beach is clean, peacefully and you will find plenty of room for privacy.
