Nantucket Beach Foundation
The Nantucket Beach Foundation (NBF) is one of the leading advocates, educators and researchers on the economic and conservation issues surrounding erosion protection and public access to Nantucket’s beaches.
The late-day fog rolling into Surfside, surfers riding the waves at Cisco, children at Jetties Beach flying kites and waving to the arriving ferries these are just a few of the ways Nantucket beaches embody the essence of island life.
Year-round residents, summer vacationers, and even those who come to Nantucket for a weekend of repose, will all agree that the best thing about Nantucket is the simple pleasure of a day at the beach. The Nantucket Beach Foundation works to preserve the sand everyone loves to sift through their fingers and toes.
NBF strives to enlist the community and its leaders to prioritize, embrace and vigorously pursue the implementation of responsible erosion protection of our endangered beaches in both the present and as stewards for future generations. Complacency and inaction about protecting our beaches will ultimately have a damaging effect on the island’s economy and endanger the quality, quantity and community’s ability to access the island’s overwhelming majority of privately owned beaches.
