Nice beach close to town

We were able to take a 5 minute walk down to the beach from our hotel and go for a swim in the afternoon.

The beach is near the main street and many of the inns, and there is restroom nearby, but the beach itself is not very beautiful. There are quite a few rocks in the water and along the sand.

The beach is close to the piers, ferries, park and busline. It is rocky when getting in the water. You definitely need water shoes or aqua socks if you or your children want to enjoy the water. the water is lovely. There is a lifeguard at the beach. Restrooms are near the steamship authority pier.

It's a nice, little beach - perfect place to visit for a couple of hours if you're on a day trip or staying in a nearby hotel. We enjoy going there every year. Close to restaurants and shops, and easy to access.

Nice in shoulder season. Water just warm enough for wading. Bruised my ankle: staff at MV hospital very professional. Great burgers at Fat Ronnies. Each cooked to order.

Without heading out to State Beach, there is a very nice beach close to the center of town that has great views of the sound and is very pleasant to swim in. We enjoy taking a cup of coffee down there and experience the sun rising in the morning....cool breezes and beautiful views of the seashore.

Loved touring the gingerbread houses in Oak Bluff. They were so pretty. We also loved eating at Coop de Ville.

Great beach if you are walking through Oak Bluffs. Locals use this beach as well, there are bathrooms with showers at one end near the fishing pier and Steamship authority.

It was a chilly day but beautiful day to walk our dog in a stunning place. We watched the ferry come in and the fishing boats go out near sunset. Fall is wonderful on the Vineyard.

Nice free beach. Close to our hotel and close to Oak Bluff Town. No problem to take a stroller with you.
