  • I had read it was perfect for sunset and it certainly was. Even in November. Even saw a seal popping his head in and out of the water.

  • This is a beautiful beach and it has the bonus that it is next to Millies. Now you have 2 reasons to head out here!

  • Madaket Beach is a very natural feeling beach with rougher waves than some of the others. The sky and water get so pretty around sun set! Be aware of the tides because the water splits the beach when its high. The walk out to Smith's Point is so cool and there are hundreds of seagulls along the way. At the end you can see Tuckernuck Island! The fishing is pretty good too!
  • It's a beach. There's sand and ocean and sea stuff. Porta potties on site. No food but Millie's is great and only a 5 minute bike down the road. When I went in late August, the water was still surprisingly cold and tumultuous which made the water really opaque. Not that busy during the day as well so good to visit and have space
