The Island’s Best Beaches

Hop a ferry to the island of Chappaquiddick, 300 yards off the Vineyard’s eastern coast, for miles of empty sand and great bird-watching (spot blue herons and sandpipers).

West Tisbury’s Long Point Wildlife Refuge encompasses 600 acres of windswept dunes, hiking trails, and unspoiled coastline.

You won’t witness a better sunset than at Menemsha Beach, a two-minute walk from the fishing village of the same name. Pack a picnic and a blanket—it gets cold at dusk.
