LRE’s Guide to Monomoy, Shimmo, Shawkemo & Polpis

A high-end residential area nestled at the north shore, highly desired for its vast views of town from across the harbor. It is very residential but is only a short way to town. It is a great spot for shellfishing, scalloping and watching the sunrise and sunset. 

What to Do

Cranberry Bog is a unique Nantucket landmark. The bog has 24 separate bogs that span over 195 acres and can produce as much as 2 million pounds of berries. Every fall there is a festival where you can watch them at work while enjoying live music, hayrides, games, sheep shearing and lots of food. 

Altar Rock is the highest point on the Island that brings breathtaking views. It is a great place to walk, ride a bike or go on a drive. 

Monomoy Beach is a small calm beach perfect for small children. It is lifeguarded and offers great soft sand. 

Polpis Beach is on the harbor side and is a perfect spot to cruise the harbor in the kayak or take the whole family for a sail.
