Attraction details
Owner description: Jump the waves or ride the great surf on the Atlantic Ocean side of this three-mile barrier beach, or enjoy a more relaxed pace on the tranquil Katama Bay side, a protected salt pond with lovely views of the bay. Katama is the largest public beach on the island.

Love this beach, love the Katama area, love Edgartown. Wife and I got a room for 3 nights at the Harborview and spent part of every day at Katama beach. Heaven. Going back to mv next week and doing it again.

Beach is clean and populated. Can be very busy at times so get your spot early. Not many services: no showers, concessions, and only porta potties. Surf can be rough, which was fun for us, but maybe not the best for novice swimmers. We recommend it!

Our daughter and her fiance went kite boarding here. There was good wind and a nice safe area to enjoy.

Katama Beach is graced with a fantastic airport with three intersecting sod runways. Reasonable tie-down fees (1/2 day - $10, all day - $20, and beach - $15) provide access to the beach and short walk to Edgartown. The restaurant on site, Right Fork Diner, offers a great "$100 hamburger." Note: no fees when unattended, September 15 through May 15.
