Massachusetts beach, ocean and waterfront resorts to plan a MA vacation

Massachusetts beach and ocean resorts are a great choice for a family vacation or a romantic weekend getaway or any trip of any description. The first places that spring to mind are Cape Cod and the islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nanatucket. Several luxury and family-oriented resorts greet vacationers, including the Wequasset Resort and Ocean Edge resorts on Cape Cod; the Winnetu resort on Martha's Vineyard; and the TheWauwinet and White Elephant on Nantucket. Elsewhere, Gloucester and Rockport North of Boston and Hull and Plymouth South of Boston have resorts with luxury spas , fine dining, water sports and family fun.

Iconic Nantucket resort continues to offer returning guests first-class experiences, accommodations

When the Nantucket Hotel & Resort, then known as the Point Breeze, opened its doors in 1891, it promised guests an experience that was “first class in every particular.” That remains true today, as guests return year after year to enjoy the sanctuary of nearby beaches and comfortable, spacious accommodations, some with private balconies and water views. Stroll down to the beach (or ride down in an antique bus) or over to Brant Point Lighthouse. Arrange for a sail, a fishing excursion – or have a rental bike delivered to the hotel to see the shore from its many bike paths. Enjoy fresh seafood and other delights at Breeze, swim in a heated pool, and make time for a massage, fitness or yoga class at the Nantucket Club.
