Siasconset Beach Preservation Fund is a 501(c)3 organization that was formed by a group of 'Sconset homeowners concerned about erosion of the Sankaty Bluff and the threat it poses to the village of 'Sconset. Since the early 1990s, SBPF has worked to research and install, on an experimental basis, a series of measures that might control the erosion of the 'Sconset Beach from south of Sesachacha Pond to south of the 'Sconset sewer beds. The goal has been to find an effective, environmentally benign and economically feasible approach. All funding has been provided from private, non-governmental sources.

  • My mom kept saying, "now this is where I'd want to live". Granted it was November and very quiet that time of year.

  • really beautiful. lifeguard on duty. near center of Sconset town center where you can buy food, ice cream and drinks. Clean public restrooms in town center (or porta potties at the beach for the more adventurous) and a great boat-themed playground across the street. super convenient and easy to get to with the wave shuttle. Not crowded.
  • Beach is convenient if you are taking in some rays but water has always had seaweed and water is not the cleanest looking.
  • Great beach! Waves are amazing, the ground drops off fast. Fun to see the seals.
  • Nice
  • One of my favorite beaches to visit on Nantucket.
