Katama is a great beach to go to for good waves and great fun. The beach has a beautiful view and is in a great location. I would definitely recommend this beach if you are on Martha's Vineyard.

Katama has little to offer a beachgoer who is looking for food, crowds or seaside attractions. What is does offer is a tranquil setting, nearby parking and great surf.

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.

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.)
