“Beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

If you have the time, the view is beautiful. Parking is limited but we circled a few times and then found a spot.

“Nice View...Very Scenic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Great view...worth the trek out to the cliffs. If staying in MV for an extended stay try the beach but you can see the cliffs and lighthouse in under 1/2 an hour.

“Light on the Cliff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I enjoyed this light house, particullay because it was on the most beautiful cliffs I have ever seen. Should be witness from the light and the water to get its greatness.

“Gay Head”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Beautiful red and white clay cliffs located on one of the tips of Marthas Vineyard. Though it belongs to the Native Americans I wish there was more evidence of that at the site. Nice overlook.
