The Children’s beach is the ideal spot for families with small children. The waters are remarkably peaceful, and the proximity to town is a nice bonus. All the necessary amenities are provided – a playground, picnic tables, a bandstand, and a grassy area. During summer months, the Park & Recreation Commission often hosts activities here.
The beach is moderately accessible for those with mobility issues. There is a ramp suitable for pedestrians, but not wheelchairs, and no safe route to the beach itself. Nonetheless, a paved walkway with 3 benches provides the same view as that on the beach. Please be aware that the walkway has a small initial incline. Plus, ramps to the accessible bathrooms and cafe near the playground are available.
Overall, this beach is great for swimming thanks to its tranquil waters and location within Nantucket harbor. It is a great choice for families looking for a peaceful place to enjoy the summer days. However, parking is limited.
