Loops Beach is a mid-sized beach named for the road that loops down to the beach area. With scenic views of the Nantucket Sound, this relaxing beach has limited parking and seldom gets overcrowded. Sand has a light mix of debris with a concentration at the water’s edge. The slope to the warm water is gradual, and the water is mostly calm due to Nantucket Sound. Swimming areas are roped off and handicap chairs are available.
