Don't look for shops or restaurants here - it's all about nature and beaches. Take advantage of one of the many tours given by The Trustees of Reservations at Cape Pogue from the Mytoi Gardens. Glad we ventured out from the touristy areas!

My late inlays first came to Chappy in 1946. They bought a house the next summer, and the following returned for this first summer in their "new" house with my late husband. But having said it is magical, one must also be realistic. While waiting for the Chappy Ferry to return to Edgartown, I started talking to two women who... More

I visit every year when on the Vineyard. I love visiting the My Toi Gardens. The little ferry is always fun and we were charmed to see a Fed Ex truck on the ferry but I guess that's the only way to get over to make the delivery.

We rented a house on Chappy. It is a beautiful and very quiet island. There is really nothing to do on Chappy other than visit My Toi and the east beach area; there is also kayaking and trips to the Cope Pogue Light house. It is a nice place to stay if you want to get away from the town... More

Fun bike ride to Dike Beach. The beach was very isolated and peaceful but there is an entrance fee that we didn't expect.

great place to bicycle - very undeveloped with lovely ponds and seashore preserves (though you must pay for access). Mytoi Japanese garden is a nice stop. Some of the roads are very sandy so rent a thicker tired bike

Chappy is one of the only places on MV where you can get peace and quiet and be away from tourists. I strongly recommend renting bicycles and riding them to the Chappy ferry. once across, be sure to visit the Mytoi gardens and maybe have a picnic there. There are several beaches on the island, and of course, there's the... More

The Ferry is 4 bucks per person, and it's well worth it. You can drive a vehicle to the island. It's extremely relaxing, family friendly and beautiful view. All in all my husband and I loved it!

Ferry ride is $24 for auto and 4 people. While it's unique not much to do unless in 4 wheel drive and beach permit to drive out to pogue

To go there, you need to take a small ferry, which makes it an experience. We went by bike. The island is beautiful, and bike friendly. The beach and parks are fantastic.
