Fun place to visit in the summers on Martha's Vineyard. Only problem is the limited parking on hot sunny days. Entrance is isolated, near the airport, but fortunately one can call ahead to the gatehouse to learn if there are open parking spaces.

A fun drive on dirt roads brings you to a really beautiful beach. Good surf for older kids. I consider the surf on this beach easier to manage than South Beach because you're able to touch bottom. The drop off to being over your head...More

While visiting the vineyard for a week with my husband and father (in his mid 80's) we went to South Beach 5 days and Long Point 1 day. We enjoyed seeing the differences in these two beautiful beaches but found Long Point, which cost $19...More

Just go before 10 am or the really best time is after 2:30. This is for the peak July/August summer times. The best part is that they have a pond for little kids (and I mean little) to splash around in, as well as the...More

This is a public beach, but access is limited both by its somewhat remote location at the end of a long drive from the main road as well as an admission fee since it is part of the preserved areas maintained by the Trustees of...More

It was perfectly situated to the place we rented for the week and although the beach was always busy - it was presented with generous proportions if you do not mind walking a bit to the left one can obtain solitude. The beach is part...More
