Ladies Beach is just south of Bartlett Farm and part of the Smooth Hummocks Coastal Preserve. On your journey, you can grab a picnic lunch and a bottle of rosé from the farm.
You’ll find a parking area and a footpath through the dunes granting access to the beach. With its strong waves and currents, this beach is perfect for experienced swimmers and surfers.
Like many other beaches on Nantucket, Ladies Beach won’t offer any facilities – just a wide expanse of space great for gathering with friends and family.
At low tide, it’s a great spot for body surfing and boogie boarding, and you can often find surfers riding the mild waves and sandbar.
Come evening, when the atmosphere becomes peaceful and serene. You may even spot a few seals feeding just offshore as the golden hour arrives. As the sun sets, it’s the perfect way to end your day.
