One of my very favorite spots on Nantucket is Galley Beach. If you have never been, it's an upscale restaurant settled right on the beach. The interiors at Galley Beach are stunning. Think nautical blues and whites, plenty of cozy lounge spots, cute bistro chairs, and lots of natural light. 

However, it's the lounge area right on the beach that I think is the real winner. On a good night, you're sure to watch an absolutely spectacular sunset! It's quite pricey, so even if you don't go for dinner, you can still go just for drinks and enjoy the atmosphere and sunset. However, the food is always phenomenal and it's a great place for a romantic night or celebration! 

I ended up visiting Galley Beach twice while I was on Nantucket. Once for drinks and dinner with other blogger gals and the Lilly Pulitzer team (photos below) and then again for sunset drinks and snacks (photos above) before we headed to another dinner reservation! 

I recommend a reservation if you are going to sit down for dinner but if you are going just for drinks, it's first come, first serve out on the beach! I would recommend arriving an hour before sunset so you can watch the entire thing. During the busier season, I would suggest getting there really early if you want to secure a spot to sit! It's one of the most peaceful and beautiful experiences and something I will always do every time I'm on Nantucket.

For the Lilly Pulitzer dinner, I rocked this incredible white eyelet maxi dress. I'm a huge fan of maxi dresses because they are so comfortable and easy to wear but look so elegant! The thin straps are adjustable for a custom fit and the chest area has a thin padded liner so you can easily go bra-less! 

One of the things I love about Nantucket, in general, is that it is overall very casual. You can easily wear jean shorts and a striped tee with sandals, practically anywhere. However, there are a few spots (like Galley Beach) where you can dress casually, but you can also use it as an excuse to get dressed up! 

I think this dress is not only the perfect summer white dress but would be a beautiful option for a bride-to-be to wear for an engagement party, shower, rehearsal dinner, etc.! You can read more about Galley Beach in a past post, here!
