We rented bicycles in Edgartown. We carried a lunch in our backpacks and rode the ferry over. There is a fee for the round trip ride on the ferry per bike. Most of the roads are easy to ride, but ... some are dirt, a few are rocky and steep, but still a lot of fun. Of course, if you have a car, you can drive over via the ferry. The Japanese Garden is peaceful and very pretty and a wonderful place to eat a picnic lunch. This is the only place on the island where there are bathrooms. The beaches around the island are beautiful, but you have to pay to use the public beach, so bring some cash if you want to spend any time there. We spent about 2 1/2 hours riding around the island wich is about the right ammount of time if you aren't going to spend time at the beach. When this review page asks if there is a fee, I will say yes, but ... the fee is for the ferry ride over and for the beach if you choose to go on the public beach.
