Nantucket, United States Of America

Best time to go

If you’d rather avoid the huge summer crowds, visit Nantucket in the Autumn when temperatures stay pleasantly moderate, and the ocean is still warm enough for swimming or surfing.

Our thoughts

An island landmark, the iconic White Elephant is one of the finest luxury hotels on Nantucket. We recommend booking a suite or cottage for extra privacy and space.

The White Elephant's Brant Point Grill, known affectionately as BPG, is located directly on the picturesque harbour. BPG offers fresh, local cuisine and breathtaking views. Toast with fine wines over delectable dishes of steak and seafood as you watch the sailboats float past at radiant sunset.
