What we like about Brant Point

Brant Point is a classic summer enclave, adjacent to Town, featuring a shoreline that runs from the White Elephant to Jetties Beach. The homes in this area vary from casual summer cottages to grand stately waterfront homes. Jetties Beach is well suited for calm water swimming with the convenience of public restrooms and changing rooms, a restaurant (The Sandbar at Jetties Beach), and Nantucket Community Sailing (NCS). Whether you want to relax on the beach, enjoy the outdoor dining, or rent a kayak or boat from NCS, Jetties Beach is an ideal family-friendly summer setting.
