I spent a week on Martha's Vineyard for 11 years during my 20s and never once went to this beach. I drove by it many times and assumed it wasn't a good beach because of all the parked cars lined up on the road. I was so pleasantly surprised at how much I love this beach now. When you are on the beach you forget about the road behind you. The water is calm and beautiful. There are minnows, crabs and other small fish to catch. The narrow shoreline means you have an unobstructed water view. And, at the Oak Bluffs end of the beach you can jump the bridge.
