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 this quiet beach, steps from The Pequot Hotel. Breathtaking views of the sunrise. Great walking path.

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.

Great place to throw a frisbee and read a book. The water on the beach was clean, clear and warm. We never wanted to leave either place.

The water was clean, calm and warm. The noise from the traffic behind the beach detracted from the relaxation at times. The only unfortunate situation was the lack of any facilities, as far as we could see. If our hotel was not 1 minute waking distance, it would have been difficult to stay there very long.

This beach is very easy to get to and is a nice, easy to get to beach! There is plenty of soft sand and it is very accessible to walk, ride a bike or catch the bus over to the beach. Great views and the sunsets are amazing!
