These cliffs are incredibly breathtaking and worth every minute of the trip to the other end of the island, from Oak Bluffs where the ferry docks. You can take buses to get to the cliffs, which won't take long, since Martha's Vineyard is only 25 miles long (if you take the buses, get a day pass for $6 or you'll end up paying more for a round trip). The side of the cliffs by the Gay Head Lighthouse is fenced to prevent further erosion, but if you walk back to the main road, you will be able to walk through a beach parking lot to a trail leading to Moshup Beach and other cliffs. You can go almost right up to the cliffs (signs warn when you can't go furher) and can see the erosion of the clay in the sand. Below are some incredible pictures showing the majesty of these cliffs. It's truly something to see if you go to Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard, especially if you're looking for a less shopping-oriented trip. Aquinnah is a very peaceful town, and there weren't many tourists there, like some of the other towns. It was very relaxing and inspiring to view something so beautiful and off the beaten path.
