You have to go on the Chappy Ferry if you visit Edgartown. It was made famous in the movie Jaws and is a 5 minute ride.

We hired bikes and took a ride down to the famous Dike Bridge. Probably too far to walk but a fantastic cycle on a warm day

This small island is lovely for a picnic at sunset on the beach. Bring a blanket, bottle of wine, picnic and walk across the boardwalk out to the beach. You may be the only ones on it. Lovely spot!

Many years ago we visited the original Dyke Bridge and we felt such sadness knowing the history there. Today they redid the bridge, opened up the area more and hope the history to this place goes away (in my opinion)

We rode the ferry to Chappaquiddick because we wanted to look around. We were told that the bridge was only about a miles walk, so we took off. We passed some locals walking their dogs and they informed us that the bridge was actually over...More

The ferry is cute. Chappaquiddick isn't a destination unless you want to see the Japanese garden (unexpectedly nice) or the infamous bridge. Not worth the trip unless you are a history fan of tragedy.

The ferry to the island was 'cute'! The island itself doesn't really have much to see, except the BEAUTIFUL beach and the trail along the Indian reservation next to the beach!! Beach is well worth going over to visit! Of course there is the "Dike...More

Chappy is a mostly residential hunk of land that is sometimes connected to MV. "Chappaquidick" itself translates to "sometimes an island" in Wampanoag, though the only way you can really get there is by taking a very quick ride on a very small ferry. The...More

Chappaquiddick can be reached by taking the very short ferry boat to the island from Edgardtown. If you haven't a car or bike there's not much to see, although there is a small beach. But if you do have a car there are glorious beaches,...More

We really wanted to see the Cape Pogue Lighthouse. I did a lot of research and still failed. The ferry ride was nice. Very quick, great staff and not overpriced. There is only like one paved street through the island from the ferry to the...More

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