Owner description: Exclusive Martha's Vineyard beach.
Reviewed 23 July 2017

We rented a house in Chilmark and so were able to wait the 45 minutes at the Chilmark town hall to get a car and walk-on passes for this beach. I don't recall what it cost, sorry.

Nice beach. Some areas have large rocks in the water so you'll want to avoid body-surfing the waves in those places.

If you have a walk-on pass, you can get dropped off at the check-in point to the parking lot, and walk on to the beach.

I did not see any food stands, which helps keep the beach quiet and clean - but bring your own food and water and shelter (umbrella and chair).

Now that I think about it, having a pair of water shoes would be good for all the beaches I visited on Martha's as you never know when there'll be a mess of rocks underfoot.

So scenic and beautiful. Nice waves and sand. Lots of pretty stones and shells. Good spot for sunset pics or even a wedding.

Just a beautiful beach. Wide, soft sand, things to explore. The rock formations are amazing. It is resident only in season but available for all to explore off season. Worth a trip up to chilmark on a nice day

Our island beach for years. We tend to visit more off season. Carry in and carry out, only porta potties available and no concessions. Take an umbrella as there is no shade at all. Watch the weather reports for great waves for boogey boarding.

the large stones and mist rolling into the cliffs is quite the scene. The parking was easy and a quick flat walk to the beach. Plenty of space to spread out from the crowds
