Craigville Beach is a larger mid-cape beach located on Nantucket Sound. A popular summer location, this beach is known to get crowded. Sand is coarse, with crushed shells and pebbles mixed throughout with dried and fresh seaweed closer to the water’s edge. During high-tide there can be a slight drop-off to the water, which is considered warm for a New England beach; the waves are mostly small although some get to mid-sized, depending on the weather. Water has seaweed.
