There really is nothing to see on Chappaquiddick. A lot of dirt roads and driveways. No shops or restaurants.

It starts on a very small 3-car barge to travel upwards of 500 feet from Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard across the harbor to Chappaquiddick Island. As you travel through the seemingly desolate land you come upon beaches that are vast an untouched and feel more...More

Chappaquiddick may be a beautiful place; I can't say as we saw nothing. We took the Choppy Ferry, not knowing that unless you had a bike, or took your car on the ferry, you were in for several miles of walking. After walking for about...More

Only a couple of minutes on the walk-on/Drive-on ferry that runs continuously from Edgartown. Ferry was $4 each. There is a small beach immediately adjacent to the ferry dock and great views over Edgartown and the lighthouse. There are nice walks if you venture further,...More

What a disappointment, no place to walk, or anything to see really. Lots of private property with signs to keep out. No beach to speak of and a $4 ferry ride to no where. Ferry took less than 1minute. Skip it and be glad you...More

So worth the little ferry just for the gardens and the private beaches that are off road are very exclusive and private. Must visit!

I first learned of Chappa from a book by a popular Martha’s Vineyard author. Reading about the Japanese garden intrigued me and I am so glad that it did. You have to take a short ferry from MV over to Chappa from Edgartown.

It is pricey to cross and I think you have to factor it in as we asked if there were any deals, discounts, etc and we were told no!

I brought my own. Search for Edgartown Bicycles or Wheel Happy for rentals. Most rental places can bring bikes to you if you ask
