If you’re looking for a beach on the South side of the island (where the sand is softer and the waves a little bigger), Surfside is a great option. Plenty of free public parking across the street and a snack shop for food and drink....More

This is one of the prettiest beaches on the east coast and if you are lucky you will see seals. The beach is very clean and big.

My favorite beach on the island so far. Showers, changing rooms, restrooms available. During the season there is food too. Plenty of parking and wide area to explore. Can be rough tho in the surf.

Always spend some time at Surfside when we visit ACK. The dogs love it and you can walk for miles. Very clean rest rooms available and plenty of parking.

Big wide beach with ample parking and restrooms. A beautiful and clean place to sit and enjoy the sand and sea. You can walk endlessly in either direction or just dig your toes in the sand.

Shack on the beach with picnic tables. Good lemonade but pricey. Crab sandwich was really really good.
