Craigville beach is not only a great swimming beach, it is also a very nice beach to go for a lengthy walk. Pick a direction left or right. East or west if you prefer and head out. An end to end will give you about five miles. The massive beach area allows for lots of sunbathers and swimmers, and the parking lot holds an equal amount of cars. The long, wide strand of beach is located on Nantucket Sound. It is staffed with lifeguards and equipped with bathrooms and showers.
