The kids wanted no part of the children's beach. It's more of a spot for day trippers to put their feet in the water. Very small and crowded with no restrooms nearby and not a place to stay for any length of time.

Our daughter was so ready to get out of the stroller! She had a blast at the park. They had balls and hula hoops - that was a nice touch. The beach was fine for a little wading with mom. We really enjoyed it.

Cute little beach area with a nice playground and small area of sand. Water was slightly murky though my 5 year old grandson didn't seem to mind! It was across from where my daughter and her family stayed so I can understand that it was...More

I was walking back to the ferry when I literally stumbled upon this place. Wonderful for the kids with lots of swing sets and play areas.

Great park, beautiful view of the harbor, easy walk from town. Enjoyed the view from one of many park benches. Great playground for kids.

It's a beautiful view but I wouldn't take my kids swimming there (my personal opinion)! Watch people put their boats in, sit around and eat your lunch or walk over to the White Elephant. They have a stage and kids usually run around & I...More

Picturesque setting, no waves, attentive life guards, play ground (larger for older kids, smaller set for toddlers) & swings, green grass area, snack bar, showers, activities (see scheduled activities) what is not to love?

We've been going to children's beach for years. As a regular Nantucket visitor since the early 80's, this beach has always been one of our favorites. Calm waters, beautiful views of the inner harbor and great swimming. Watch the ferry boats come and go!!

The beach is close to Inns and houses, however, very small and close to the docks. No bathrooms, or places to grab food. True to the name, this is a great place to bring the kids, with a grassy area and playground.
