Traveling to this area of the island is like venturing into another time and place. The houses were beautiful, the views breathtaking and the shops were quaint. It feels remote from Oak Bluffs or Vineyard Haven. Downside was there was no parking and trying to find parking after driving around and around is very frustrating. It was suggested that we... More

It was quite pleasant taking the very short ferry ride over to Chappaquiddick Island after experiencing the crowds in Oak Bluffs and even in downtown Edgartown. It was like we entered a different world of serenity. Lots of open stretches of roads, woods, and some farm land along with occasional driveways. The Chappaquiddick firehouse is very nice. We took our... More

Slip Away Farm for fresh veggies, MyToi Gardens for meandering (or wedding), Wasque Beach for surf-casting, East Beach for dreaming (next stop: Portugal!) and Chappy's peaceful graveyard, en route... After you survive the "On-Time" ferry line, you'll bike or drive just a few miles to heaven itself. Friends who live there cannot imagine being anywhere else. Enjoy!

Great variety of fruits and vegetables, many of which are grown by the farm itself. Great selection of cut flowers and exceptionally good tea breads and pies. Run by a wonderful on island family, which deserves the patronage of all who inhabit or visit Martha's Vineyard.

If your looking for a great beach that seems like it's all your own then "Chappy" is for you. Pack everything you need for the day since there are no stores or gas stations. Your adventure starts with a short ferry ride. Great day at the beach!

Cute little town with some nice shops and eateries. One of the towns on the vineyards where they filmed 'Jaws' and they are keeping the memories alive! Best attraction are the Ferries-The 'On Time II' and 'On Time III'! Just like in the movie!

I took the Chappy Ferry to Chappaquiddick--527 feet across the water! I enjoyed the Mytoi Gardens, and the Trustees conducts tours to the Lighthouse. We drove around- some rough roads for sure, but a lovely island.

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
