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.

Located ideally next to tourist area and hotels. Calm waters and not very deep. I walked out about 100 yards before the water got deep. The sand is rocky but filled with shells which would be great for kids. No alcohol allowed signs are for the most part ignored on the beaches around the island which is great for grown... More

Enough beach for everyone, but maybe not quite enough parking ;-) easy to find a fairly quiet spot, plenty of sand to spread yourself out. If the wind is too much on the ocean side, try the pond across the road.

Not sure I would make a special trip to go to the Oak Bluffs beach but if you are staying nearby it is quite nice. It is not as deep as south beach and the waves are not as big but it is also a little warmer.

We didn't come here to sunbathe or play in the surf, just to take a break from shopping. It was very pebbly, lots of shells, and not too insanely crowded!

The weather was great, so we walked from the Oak Bluff Marina and tried to find a patch of sand to call our own. It was difficult. The beach was packed, The sand is yellow and soft and the water was tranquil so we did make the best of it, but it was very crowded

Loved that the beach is close enough to walk to from our room in Oak Bluffs. The beach was clean and the people were a wonderful mix of families and groups just having fun.
