Keyes Beach is located on Nantucket Sound and is also known by Orrin Keye’s Memorial Beach, Sea Street Beach, and Orin Keys Beach. This mid-sized family friendly beach offers a shaded park area, concessions stand, bathrooms, and harbor views. Sand is soft with a light mix of seaweed and shells until the water’s edge where there is a larger concentration of each. The slope to the water is gradual with a moderate amount of seaweed mixed in the lake-like waves.
