Welcome to Nantucket County, Massachusetts. Nantucket County comprises the Island of Nantucket and a few outlying smaller islands. The nearest other counties are Dukes County on the island of Martha's Vineyard which lies across Muskeget Channel to the west; Barnstable County on Cape Cod is across Nantucket Sound to the north. The Atlantic Ocean lies to the east and south.
Inland on this idyllic "elbow of sand", the wild moors open to the endless sky. Nearly 40 percent of Nantucket is protected conservation land. Several areas and habitats, natural groups of plants and animals, are rare to this region and even the world.
Walk the wide sandy beaches, as beautiful as any in the world. Swim in the still, sparkling waters of Nantucket Sound to the north, or brave the mighty Atlantic along the island's south shore. Let the pounding surf, and clean, salty air restore you. Try your hand at surfcasting for stripers and bluefish or charter a boat for deep-sea fishing. Catch a breeze on a sailboat or a windsurfer.
Take in the boutique shops, and explore the art galleries and museums. Celebrate Nantucket's cultural offerings year-round with theatrical performances, music, art, film, and literature. Sign on for a guided tour of the island or pick up a picnic lunch and rent a bike, a good way of discovering Nantucket for yourself.
