A Great Surprise!

Friends on the island have directed my wife and I to many great restaurants over the years at MV. And, we've been to the Aquinnah many times. But, we just assumed the Aquinnah... read more

Friends on the island have directed my wife and I to many great restaurants over the years at MV. And, we've been to the Aquinnah many times. But, we just assumed the Aquinnah Cliffs would just be a tourist trap with mediocre food and a great view at sunset. Boy were we wrong! Yes, the view is spectacular. But, the... More

Magnificent view and interesting traverse to get there (many bike here). Well worth the time to get there. Great shops and restaurants along the way! Do visit while on the Island!

We took the local bus from Egartown to this historic site. The recently moved Gay Head lighthouse was available to tour. Well worth it. The view of the colorful cliffs is certainly a good photo op. The Wampanoag tribe has jurisdiction over the area and has booths for sale of souvenirs and refreshments.

What a beautiful beach. The beach is clean and has breath taking views!!! It's amazing to just walk along the beach and take in the sights. You will not be disappointed. Worth the drive. Light house is beautiful!

We drove round Martha's Vineyard in a day, first stop were the cliffs. Not too easy to park real close as it is busy, just need to be lucky with someone leaving as you arrive. It is worth visiting though as the scenery is lovely including views of the lighthouse.

It's hard to describe the beauty of the cliffs. You just have to see if for yourself. There is something sacred about this place. The water is as beautiful as the Caribbean and Destin, Florida. I can't wait to return next year to the Vineyard. I plan to spend more time at the Cliffs.

If you don't go it's Sunset, you're only going to want to return at Sunset. Glow when the sun is low in the sky, great photo op. Got some great photos here
