Concierge.com's insider take:

One of the most rewarding adventures on Nantucket is a drive on the beach to the island's wild and woolly remote northeastern tip. You'll need a four-wheel-drive vehicle with reduced tire pressure (so you can maneuver on the sand), $125 for the entry fee (collected at the Wauwinet gatehouse), and a picnic lunch to enjoy beneath Great Point Light. The five-mile trip is pretty easy: Just follow the tire tracks. Stop along the way for a dip in the waves—the only other person in sight might be a surf caster fishing for blues.
