A really wonderful vineyard experience is taking your car over the sand and having a beautiful day at the beach .Unfortunatly everyone else is also doing it along with you,,,, If you don't mind crowds it's really a fun day.Go early to beat the crowd.

wrote about it already with katamana beach review. awesome. Can drive on beach. Set my 87 year old dad up in a chair 20 feet from beach. less crowded than south beach but there was the element of cars on the beach (wife not a fan). WARNING 60$ for day pass to drive on beach.

Located at the tip of beautiful Edgartown, it is a nice beach for family enjoyment. It is opposite Wasque Point which I highly also recommend. Neither beach is crowded so a family can spend the day swimming without loads of people around.

We headed to Norton Point beach as a guest of some lovely friends. Heading past the crowds at South Beach, we drove right onto the Beach. We barbequed and had a lovely lunch, sunbathed, played with the kids, and enjoyed the gorgeous weather. It's all about you and family at Norton Point Beach....

Great beach. Very natural setting. Bring what you need because there is nothing but nice sand and ocean. This beach used to connect to Chappaquidick but a storm washed out the point. Three mile walk to the point.

We had a blast driving over the sand to hang out at the beach all day. We parked on the bay side where the water is shallow so the little ones could play in the water, the Atlantic side is great for the older kids to boogie board or body surf. Please note that you need to deflate your tires... More

We went out to the area where you can drive right out to the beach and park right at the spot you want (permit required). I've never done that before... so cool. The beach itself is fantastic. Very Highly Recommended

If you have a four wheel drive vehicle and love the beach, this is the place for you. Serious waves, the smell of the ocean, and the beauty of not having to carry things out to the beach. Instead, you open the tail gate on your SUV, take out your beach chairs, and relax. But, please note, the is a... More

What seperates Norton from most Beaches on the island is the fact that you can drive your 4wd vehile out on it. They charge a fee for 1 day around 35 $ I think and a season pass for 125$. There are several beaches you can stop on depending if you want to be around people or if you want... More
