1. Ladies Beach is at the top of my list, on the way there stop at Bartlett Farms for the best chicken salad, and get a surfing lesson on the beach from Nantucket Surfari .
2. A great way to get out on the water on a boat – Make a lunch reservation at Toppers, their boat will take you across the harbor from the White Elephant to the Wauwinet. It’s my favorite lunch spot, don’t bring the kids and do order lots of rose. Take a swim afterwards on the ocean side of the beach.
