Martha's Vineyard was definitely on my list of things to see. We are very glad we went. I found it difficult to organize and plan our visit from home. So, I hope this helps. 1... read more

We (me, my wife, along with my son, daughter-in-law, and grand daughter), visited Martha Vineyard island on 22nd. Of July 2016. The first point of visit was Oak Bluff. There we visited The first HORSE CAROUSEL ride of USA. It was with live music, and also there was a game of catching the rings, giving an exciting feeling to the... More

We enjoyed our time at the beach. It wasn't overly crowded and we always rent a house where we can walk to the beach or to Circuit Ave. Sun and shells.

This beach was a little disappointing as there was very little sand and was mostly stones. It was very hard to walk and the ramps were a little far apart. Also, we spotted several sharks not too far from shore.

Easy walking access and nice sandy beach. Wish bathroom were closer. Main access with ramp, can make care parking very crowded.

Oak Bluffs Town Beach is a small beach close to the ferry terminal in Oak Bluffs. It has a few benches where you can sit and watch the ocean. It's not the best beach in Martha's Vineyard, but it is close to everything in Oak Bluffs. It's one block away from food and shopping on Circuit Avenue, right next to... More

Face it, Cape Cod and the Isalnds have some of the world's best beaches - this is not one them. But is serves its purpose beautifully because there is parking all along the road above the beach - there are lifeguards, you can walk 10 minutes to Circuit Ave for lunch, there are few bugs and green heads and it...

Loved seeing the pretty houses surrounding the green park near the bus drop off. Downtown has shopping and places to eat. Unfortunately, I missed seeing the small gingerbread style houses at the church so I guess I'll just have to go back! Easy to get there from Vineyard Haven where our ferry boat came in from Woods Hole. We just... More

I was here early in the morning, it was magical, it was not the people, and I could not fully enjoy, the beach is very nice

We spent a night on a mooring in the harbor taking a break from on of our yacht deliveries. The town of Oak Bluffs is charming as one would expect on the Vineyard. It's touristy at times, but that's the Vineyard. A bus stop is walking distance from the water front with bus routes that will take you to any... More
