This slice of beach with rugged trails and cliff view of The Elizabeth Islands is a must. One of my three favorite dirt trails on MV. Maybe best in Fall

This hard to find beach is incredible. The walk is 15-20 minutes from the road along a jungle-like path but when you get to the beach, it opens up. There is a beautiful high point which overlooks the beach below and a sea of poison ivy behind you (which is beautiful as long as you don't touch it!). Maybe not... More

If you want to explore a part of Martha's Vineyard known primarily to local people like myself, this is it. It's a beautiful area along the north shore, surprisingly remote, with lovely vistas. Don't let the long downhill dirt road put you off: you will get there eventually. And it's free (unlike many other things on the island).

Cedar Tree Neck Sanctuary is located in the NW of MV in West Tisbury. It's spectacular and a gem as others relate here. But your map link for Cedar Tree Neck Sanctuary is to a location about 1-2 miles south of Oak Bluffs in NE MV,a location that is inaccessible marsh!

Great spot. Easy walk and a spectacular view when you come near the beach. A beautiful pond on your right as you walk through the dunes to the beach. Turn right and go about 100 yards and do the Headlands loop. Easy and really cool. Only better walk is Menemsha Hills. Oh and be careful on drive down to Cedar... More

Cedar Tree is a gem of a sanctuary. There are a variety of trails all leading to the pebble beach overlooking the Vineyard Sound. There is no entry fee and the trails are all well marked. The walk to the beach in not strenuous and is worth the stroll. Note: There is no swimming for fishing allowed at the beach.... More

We visited this location on a bicycle ride gone wrong or should I say long. We were staying on the southern central part of the island near Edgartown. We decided one morning to take a ride up around the sirport that lead us to this place because ... "we wanted to see the water".... well I would not highly recommend... More

The Vineyard beaches in the summer are full of people 7 days a week. But the local know the hidden treasure spots. Visiting my friend who has been a full time Vineyard resident for the past 15 or so years....she took me over to Cedar Tree Neck Sanctuary on Sunday afternoon - 2pm on July 24th...there was not another soul...
