Sports & Recreation

Our 83 miles of unspoiled beaches is probably the greatest attraction of the Island.

National Geographic considers our beaches among the top ten in the world!.

The Sherburne Inn provides complimentary beach towels, beach bags, and beach chairs to our guests.

  • Offering changing facilities, a snack bar, and a shuttle bus from town, Jetties beach is about a 15 walk from the Inn. It is located on the warmer/calmer water of the Nantucket Sound (north) side of the Island.
  • For bigger waves and surfing, the south side beaches are a treat. There is a bus service to Surfside Beach.
