Nestled on the southeast side of the island, between Surfside and Tom Nevers, lies Madequecham, a tranquil and picturesque area.
Unsurprisingly, fewer tourists visit here due to its secluded access, which requires a four-wheel drive vehicle to traverse the winding, private road that passes through countless acres of untouched conservation land, moors, bogs, and meadows. Fear not, though, as two parking lots are available.
This hidden gem is a haven for wildlife, with its abundance of scrub oak and foliage, making it a popular spot for Nantucket’s deer population.
If you’re looking for a peaceful, low-key vacation with breathtaking views, lots of trails for walking and exploring, and the opportunity to fish, then Madequecham is the perfect place. Here, you’ll find Nantucket’s most pristine surf spots, so you can mix relaxation with a bit of adventure. Although the beach is somewhat secluded, it is a great experience for visitors to Nantucket.
