World's Best Islands

world's best islands: Nantucket, MA

No. 21 Nantucket, MA

On this tradition-rich island, old meets new—from classic hotels to swanky restaurants that cater to the sea- and scene-loving urbanites who’ve flocked to the area over the past decade. But Nantucket maintains its blustery island spirit. The 82 miles of coastline, starkly beautiful dunes, and moors feel almost as remote as they must have a century ago, and its colonial heritage is still more evident than on the mainland, just 30 miles away. For nearly perfect weather and reduced prices, head to the island during the shoulder season in late April, May, or October.
