Walk the wide sandy beaches, as beautiful as any in the world. Swim in the still, sparkling waters of Nantucket Sound to the north, or brave the mighty Atlantic along the island's south shore. Let the pounding surf and clean, salty air restore you. Try your hand at surfcasting for stripers and bluefish or charter a boat for deep-sea fishing. Catch a breeze on a sailboat or a windsurfer. Take in the boutique shops and explore the art galleries and museums. Celebrate Nantucket's cultural offerings year-round with theatrical performances, music, art, film and literature. Sign on for a guided tour of the island or pick up a picnic lunch and rent a bike, a good way of discovering Nantucket for yourself.
Hostel is 3.5 miles from Nantucket ferry wharf. Go up Main Street, turn left onto Orange, and right onto E York Street. Bear left onto Atlantic. Take Atlantic until it becomes Surfside and continue for 2 miles. At the beach, turn right onto Western Avenue.
