Brant Point Lighthouse + Beach

The Brant Point Lighthouse is the closest landmark to Hawthorn House.  Watch the boats come in the harbor and fishermen try to catch dinner.  The best swimming is on the harbor side facing Nantucket Town. To get there take a left past the Whaling Museum and then a right onto Easton Street.  Brant Point is at the end!  A great place for a picnic.  If you’re looking for more, Jetties Beach isn’t much further down Hulbert Avenue and offers on the sand dining at The Sandbar Restaurant and plenty to do for the kids.
