A 2.2 mile long stretch of barrier beach on Nantucket Sound. State Beach is very popular with families because there is a gradual slope into deeper water and the waves are usually small. It is divided into two sections: east of the highway is roadside parking, dunes, and a bathing beach. To the west are the more protected back dunes, salt marsh, and the shore of Sengekontacket Pond, popular for walking and shellfishing.
