Just a beautiful beach. Wide, soft sand, things to explore. The rock formations are amazing. It is resident only in season but available for all to explore off season. Worth a trip up to chilmark on a nice day

Our island beach for years. We tend to visit more off season. Carry in and carry out, only porta potties available and no concessions. Take an umbrella as there is no shade at all. Watch the weather reports for great waves for boogey boarding.

the large stones and mist rolling into the cliffs is quite the scene. The parking was easy and a quick flat walk to the beach. Plenty of space to spread out from the crowds

Getting access to this very private beach is not easy. Whatever compromises in you have to make to get a pass, do it! Some places in Chilmark come with passes; some don't; ask before booking. Even local property owners with required stickers cannot get in if the parking lot is full. But the beach itself is just wonderful. There is... More

This is a beach where a photographer can capture some great photographs! The beach is lovely, and the places where there are high cliffs and stone sculptures are just beautiful, and certainly not usual on other beaches. The waves make life interesting. It was not too crowded the third week in August. Just for the scenery, this beach is worth... More

I've visited this beach in the off-season to photograph the dramatic cliffs, which are slowly being eroded. So sad, but what a backdrop for summer swimming. Too bad it's private so only those who own or rent homes in the area can enjoy this nice place. It's really pretty.

We were lucky enough to come here in June before the summer season officially began. Lucy Vincent is a beach only for Chilmark residents, but there was no one to check for beach parking stickers, so we were able to walk right onto the beach. It's one of the prettiest beaches on the island with lots of incredible rock formations... More

Great beach, awesome view. We went during off season. usually this beach is only for local residents. But during off season (Oct - April) you can visit this beach without much interference from local administration. This is the best beach in MV for it's unique natural beauty. Wide beach area, long stretch, beautiful rock formations on the water and thundering... More
