One of the nicest beaches I have visited and will visit again and again; the surf is great and there is plenty of room on the beach. The South facing beach enjoys sunshine all day.

This beach is family friendly. Great fun in the sun and lovely for an evening stroll. Make sure you can carry everything in and out. Parking can cause for a lengthy walk.

A must see. Plan to spend time wandering the endless, clean beach, watching the waves as they come in.

What I love about my visit to Martha's Vineyard is all of the amazing places to see. Katama Beach was lots of fun. Four wheeling friendly as well.

I enjoyed all of the beaches on the Vineyard for different reasons; Katama Beach felt like the most remote of all we visited...a vast, gorgeous beach. Nice and sandy (vs. rocky.) Fairly rough seas while we were there in September that made swimming a no-go, but a great beach for relaxing in the ocean air. Loved the bike path that... More

Wow. We had a perfect beach day here. Probably the best beach I've ever been too. The day was extremely hot but the breeze on the beach kept us cool. It was almost chilly.
