Nantucket Beach Bus

The Cottages & Loft's most popular amenity is our complimentary Beach Bus. Easily recognizable with its colorful, dotted exterior, the bus runs from mid-June through Labor Day from 10am - 5pm. Skipper, our official beach bus driver, is ready and waiting to take you to your favorite beach. Plus, we'll supply complimentary beach gear.

Beach Bus gear includes

  • Beach towels
  • Beach chairs
  • Beach umbrellas
  • Boogie boards
  • Coolers
  • Beach games and toys
The Beach Bus isn't restricted to simply going to the beaches. Skipper knows his way around the island and is happy to make suggestions for fun ways to spend your idyllic days on Nantucket. If golf is your sport, then we're off to Miacomet Golf Course. How about a hike through Sanford Farm? Bring your pet on board the bus…Skipper loves dogs! If you prefer to explore the other end of the island, then Skipper knows the way to the quaint village of Sconset where you can enjoy an afternoon stroll overlooking the ocean.
There is no bus schedule; it's first come, first served. Simply, sign up at the front desk when you know when and where you'd like to go. It's that easy. The Beach Bus is available for hire should you wish to have an extended tour of the island or for evening transportation. The Beach Bus is only available to guests staying at The Cottages & Lofts.
