Nantucket Beaches in top ten best in world

National Geographic’s book “The 10 Best of Everything” lists Nantucket beaches among the top ten in the world. Sharing the honor are: The Seychelles, Maldives, Bora Bora, The Hamptons, Lanikai Beach in Hawaii, Fraser Island in Australia, St. Bart’s, Langkawi in Malaysia, and Kauna’oa Bay in Hawaii.

“The most popular beaches on this island in the North Atlantic are Surfside and Children’s. The waters here are relatively calm, and there’s plenty of sand to use for sunbathing or castle-building. Madaket Beach is known for its rougher surf and not-to-be-missed sunsets. Quidnet Beach provides great views of Sankaty Head lighthouse.”
