Nantasket Beach

Nantasket Beach is a resort neighborhood in the town of Hull that has a storied history as a summer retreat for the Kennedy family, former President Calvin Coolidge, and other luminaries.

The neighborhood draws its name from the Indian word for “low-tide place,” referring to the fact that the site was originally a tidal island connected to the mainland by a sandbar that was only visible at low tide. The beach is one of the most highly rated beaches in Greater Boston because of its light, fine sand and gentle slope. Photos of Nantasket Beach figure prominently in many sunset and sunrise photos of the South Shore. For many years, Nantasket Beach was home to Paragon Park, an amusement complex that sported an iconic rollercoaster as well as other carnival rides, and finally closed in 1984 when the property was sold to a condo developer. Today the historic carousel and clock tower on the boardwalk are the only surviving remnants of Paragon Park.

The northern part of the beach is private with access limited to residents. The housing stock includes properties for all budgets from waterfront estates to beach cottages to soaring high-rises and boutique condo buildings. All boast sweeping water views and stunning sunsets, depending upon their exposures. Many homes were built in the 1930s and 1940s although they have since been renovated with modern conveniences. Condos are newer, built in the late 1980s -- such as The Horizons at Paragon Park -- all the way up to the present. Hull waterfront properties continue to be relatively affordable compared to homes in neighboring South Shore towns. As a result, Nantasket Beach is an attractive option for first-time home buyers or for those looking for a vacation home or weekend retreat.
