#1 of 10 in Parks in Nantucket
Revel in romantic views at Madaket Beach, the perfect setting for a sunset stroll.

Grab a bite at the nearby restaurant to make the most of the evening, or find a particularly pretty spot and settle in for a picnic. Bring warm clothes with you to protect against cool winds, and keep an eye on children venturing into the strong swell.
