A Mass. beach just ranked among the top 25 island beaches in the world – Boston.com

Travel may have been largely on pause in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, but that didnt stop Conde Nast Traveler readers from dreaming of epic beach destinations worldwide including one in Massachusetts.

The travel publication released a list of 25 best island beaches in the world on Thursday as part of its 2020 Readers Choice Awards, and Nantuckets Siasconset Beach ranked No. 23. The best island beach, according to the list, is Gouverneur on St. Barts.

For the 33rd Annual Readers Choice Awards readers leaned in heavily into nostalgia, the publication noted, and the lauded beaches are sandy spots readers thought about this year and cant wait to return to.

Heres what Conde Nast Traveler wrote about Sconset, which is an island destination to watch a sunrise:

At the eastern most flank of the island, Siasconset can be reached from town via a six-mile bike ride on the Milestone Road path (or, in the summer, on a NRTA shuttle bus). Food and restrooms can be found nearby in the adjacent historic village of Sconset. Built in 1850, the Sankaty Head Light is well worth a wander to the northern tip of the beach (its rarely open to climb, except on specific days). Best of all, though, is the Sconset Bluff Walkwith the strong Atlantic on one side and a row of multi-million-dollar homes on the other. Waves here are rough, even in summer, so bundle up for a long winter walk if youre on the island during the off season.
