Mostly dirt roads. Went there to see the infamous bridge. No big deal. The Japanese garden was very nice, peaceful.

About as quaint and peacefull as it gets. Scenic with few paved roads---and views wherever you go. The ferry is great and the operators are real characters.

This was our first time on Chappy. So quiet, well protected, well kept natural beauty. The shore line is unbelievable; the history interesting.

We took the Chappy Ferry across to the island and really enjoyed that. Yeah it only holds three cars and takes about a minute, but something neat about it. Once on the island, we drove out to Mytoi Gardens, which was worth the trip alone, and then out to the parking area by Dike Bridge and walked down to the... More

This Island is one of the "Best Kept Secrets" in New England. It has miles of unspoiled white sandy beaches, quiet walking paths, a huge conservation area, and a lovely natual country side. It is a wonderful place to escape from a busy life. I loved it there and found a great home near Wasque, that over-looked the tip of... More

We walked down to the pier from the Kelly House to see the infamous bridge where it all happened. Not that impressive but historically significant.

Not much on the island and you should have an at least a 4 wheel drive to go on the roads - a bit rustic.

Better off just watching the On Time Ferry shuttle back and forth. At least that's entertaining, Nothing special to see, go up island to the cliffs and Menemsha instead.
