Martha’s Vineyard has a beach for everyone, from the expansive Atlantic ocean south shore to quiet coves of the island's north shore. Whether you want to swim, surf, fish or sail, our 124 miles of picturesque shoreline and large inland ponds offer something for everyone. There are public beaches in every town as well as beaches within conservation lands around the island. The up-island towns of West Tisbury, Chilmark and Aquinnah feature town-owned beaches, accessible to residents and renters in those towns. Keep exploring and trying new options, and you’ll find beaches that offer the perfect setting for you.
