The entire family from young children to grandparents loved this beach! It was totally worth the cost of the beach pass even for just a week. It wasn't overcrowded, the waves & sand were perfect and you can't beat the gorgeous landscape! We can't wait...More

If you are not a local or know a local that lives in Chillmark you won't be able to get onto the beach seeing you need a pass. The beach is decent. I don't think they drag out the beach nor do they clean off...More

This was our second time in MV, but our first time on Lucy Vincent Beach as you have to live or be renting in Chilmark to get a beach pass. That said, this beach is GORGEOUS - so dramatic - its a nice wide, softly...More
