Nestled away in the western-end of Nantucket lies the scenic Madaket neighborhood. With a relaxing, ‘Old Nantucket’ feel matched with ‘off the beaten path’ styled beaches, Madaket embodies the simplicity of island life. It is no wonder Nantucket locals regularly slip away to this picturesque village, even Mr. Rogers himself, for an unmatched sunset, laid-back atmosphere, and an incredible beach landscape. 1_Hero_image.jpg

Welcome to MADAKET

Idyllic sunset views, weathered water-front cottages, and miles of uncrowded coastline, Madaket is a quaint paradise for those seeking serenity on the coast. This westernmost village serves as a counterpart to Town: whereas Town is bustling, Madaket is peaceful, uninterrupted, and relaxing. Those with a love for fishing can charter with a guide such as Bill Fisher Outfitters who specialize in world-class fly and spin fishing of striped bass, tuna, false albacore, and more. Enjoy Bartlett’s Farm fresh produce trucks, a local tradition reaching back to at least 1852, offering everything from flower arrangements to world-class tomatoes.

Everyone knows Millie’s is a Nantucket staple, just ask the New York Times and Boston Globe. Named after “Madaket Millie” Jewett, an island legend and longtime Coast Guard Auxiliary volunteer, the seasonal restaurant serves up coastal fare of fresh produce and island-caught seafood in their casual dining scene. Unwind at happy hour with Millie’s island famous “Madaket Mystery” cocktail or order baja-style tacos at the take-out counter for your next family dinner.
