“Arrive early to view sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

Beautiful sunset! If you want to get a parking space arrive before 5:00 and bring dinner, drinks and chairs and just relax. There is food available at the beach but the lines are super long. It is truly a memorable time. Enjoy!

“Amazing sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

The best place on the island to watch the sunset!!!! I love coming here to eat seafood on the beach while enjoying the view. We ordered hot lobster rolls from Menemsha fish market this time which was much less crowded than Larsen's and equally as tasty. The only downfall is the parking!! There is a small public lot that fills very quickly and it's almost impossible to find parking. They have a parking lot a few miles away with a shuttle to the beach which we took this time and wasn't bad. Overall a must if you visit the Island!!

“Beautiful sunset and lobster!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

We arrived around 5 and struggles to park. Hear there's a new parking lot with a shuttle bus, which we"ll try next time. Beautiful evening and lots of others there waiting for sunset. Walked down the road and got boiled lobsters and some bisque to eat on the beach. Lovely view and calm seas - wish I had the kayak out. Very festive atmosphere.

Kids played on the jetty and swam. Lots of pretty polished rocks here.

Has bathrooms which is important! Nice beach but a little rocky. Has a few places to eat. All in all a nice place for a few hours in the sun
