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

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.

Great island just outside Edgartown. Great Park and beach. There is rip tide there so not good for for swimming on Wasque.

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
