The only way to beach

We've been coming to Norton Point for 20+ years. It's the best way to beach with kids and dogs. From breakfast on the beach to sunset dinners, it's a slice of heaven.

We've been going to Norton Point Beach since 1988 and will continue to do so until we can't drive anymore! No need to carry anything onto the beach-its all in your car. Just find a place to park and pop open your trunk. One tip...way too crowded on holidays such as the 4th of July.

Don't think it's fair to state that a car can be driven on the beach............this is not Daytona; it's a beautiful dune and deep white sand beach that permits over sand passage within regulated areas. The passes are for vehicles that can have their tires deflated to appx. 15ps, 4WD and have adequate clearance. The passes are purchased at the... More

If you want to escape the crowds the effort to get here is rewarding beyond expectations. The trip is fun in itself and SPACE on arrival before going back to town and sampling some fine seafood. Sailing around the Islands is a good and inexpensive way to accommodate a family so consider chartering a skipper and mid size yacht. Even... More

Drive on to one of New England's finest beaches. Four wheel on with everything you need for a one of a kind beach experience.

A really wonderful vineyard experience is taking your car over the sand and having a beautiful day at the beach .Unfortunatly everyone else is also doing it along with you,,,, If you don't mind crowds it's really a fun day.Go early to beat the crowd.

Located at the tip of beautiful Edgartown, it is a nice beach for family enjoyment. It is opposite Wasque Point which I highly also recommend. Neither beach is crowded so a family can spend the day swimming without loads of people around.

We headed to Norton Point beach as a guest of some lovely friends. Heading past the crowds at South Beach, we drove right onto the Beach. We barbequed and had a lovely lunch, sunbathed, played with the kids, and enjoyed the gorgeous weather. It's all about you and family at Norton Point Beach....

Great beach. Very natural setting. Bring what you need because there is nothing but nice sand and ocean. This beach used to connect to Chappaquidick but a storm washed out the point. Three mile walk to the point.
