As advertised. Beautiful scenery of the cliffs and lighthouse. Very picturesque. Facilities are modest with a few nice little shops. I would recommend heading to 7A for a light lunch afterwords. Or the Menemsha dock for some Lobster Bisque.

We ventured to gay head; however, it was way too foggy to see anything. The restrooms were closed due to it being off season. It was a nice drive.

The cliffs reminded me of the White Dover Cliffs of England, though (maybe?) on a smaller scale. It was only a short walk from parking, since we were on an Island Tour bus, we were not sure if the hiking trail nearby would lead all...More

Simply a beautiful view. There isn't much to do in the area, but this is a really nice spot for pictures.

Fun stop on the bus route to the western part of the island. Great views, only a short walk from the road. Even the kids had fun !

You can rent mopeds, but the busy roads are narrow and winding and there have been moped accidents on Martha's Vineyard, sad to say. I'd suggest taking a tour bus if you just want to go to the cliff lookout shops. You could... More
