Miacomet Pond is a 43.5-acre freshwater pond, stretching 1.5 miles long, located on the south shore of Nantucket. This glacial outwash pond provides valuable habitat for painted and snapping turtles, as well as a variety of fish, including yellow perch, pickerel, bass, and bluegill. Visitors may observe birds foraging around the pond, such as ducks, swans, swallows, egrets, and red-winged blackbirds. Miacomet Pond, peaceful and quiet, is an ideal place to go kayaking, canoeing, and hiking.
