Assuredly enough, my travels this summer have brought me back to Nantucket to welcome in the fall. This time my visit to the island revealed even more hidden gems!
To Get There:
I found the quickest way to go is flying an air shuttle with Tradewind Aviation, which gets you there from Manhattan in less than 50 minutes. You also get a 5* private jet experience with a commercial price tag.
The Cottages, Nantucket Boat Basin
These gorgeous little waterfront cottages are full of Nantucket charm, overlooking the famous harbor, on Swain’s Wharf and Old South Wharf. Simple, quaint and ‘beachy’ inside, the cottages provide the perfect home away from home feel with modern coastal-style furnishings and a fully working kitchen. They are also extremely pet friendly, with cottages featuring doggie beds and bowls, a welcome bag of treats and even a pet turndown! Bikes are provided on location, to make admiring the street of Nantucket easier, however, the cottages are a stone’s throw away from all the nautical charm the town has to offer.
One of the most popular spots right now in Nantucket is this restaurant, and rightly so. If the craft cocktails aren’t for you, there is no way the food wouldn’t be! Start of with a ‘teach me how to dougie,’ made with mezcal, grapefruit and ginger and be sure to order some of their sensational appetizers like their ‘hawaiian tuna poke’ with dynamite & yuzu or their ‘day boat sea scallop sashimi’ with spicy thai chile jaew sauce. For mains, not to miss are the ‘blue crab fried rice’ and ‘green curry lobster.’ However, seafood specials are frequent here so be sure to make the most of the nearby catch on your visit. Overall, a 10/10 in deliciousness!
While typically known for its lunches and waterfront dinners, Galley Beach does an extremely delicious and elegant brunch. Here you can sit right on the beach, mimosa in hand and dine overlooking the blue waters of the ocean. Brunch items run from classic eggs benedict to lobster salads, however my choice of ‘toasted country bread with avocado spread, chopped egg and watercress’ was deliciously divine.
