Pocomo is located about 7 miles from Town on the way to Wauwinet. It is a small peninsula that faces back towards town, affording beautiful vistas of Coatue, Pocomo Harbor, Great Point Lighthouse and Nantucket Town.  The protected and calm water makes it a great place for a Nantucket vacation home.

The prevailing wind makes it an ideal location for sailing, windsurfing and kiteboarding -- which takes a lot of talent!  There are no lifeguards or amenities so please prepare for that. The beaches are perfect for strolling, beach combing and exploring this quiet area of the island.
