We arrived and found parking in front of the scenic overlook. Had lunch at the restaurant at the top. Fabulous views and decent food. Free parking for one hour. Then we drove our car to the beach parking lot. Was $10 for 2 hours. The beach was beautiful with lots of rocks. Amazing views of the cliffs, clean warm ocean... More

Well worth the drive from Oak Bluffs or Vineyard Haven. A short walk past the small shops and restaurants gives a great look out over the shore and cliffs.

Loved this area. Beautiful scenery. Definitely worth a visit. If going by car you can only park for one hour but there are buses that go there if you want to spend longer. Refreshments and facilities good here.

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

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.
