Best hotels, facts and information in Martha’s Vineyard
Martha’s Vineyard is an island located eight miles off the Cape Cod peninsula in Massachusetts. Once a whaling center, it has become a favorite summertime haven for many celebrities.
Martha’s Vineyard is made up of six towns, each with a selection of restaurants and accommodations. Residents have come to say “up island” to mean western areas of the island—Aquinnah, Chilmark and West Tisbury. Edgartown, Oak Bluffs and Tisbury are “down island.” South-facing beaches have the most surf. Uncle Seth’s Pond on Lambert’s Cove Road is the only freshwater beach.
The Gay Head cliffs at Aquinnah are a “must see.” Moshup Beach below the cliffs was also named as at top ten “walking beach” by the Travel Channel in 2003. Menemsha is one of the few places on the East Coast where you can see the sunset over the water. Be sure to enjoy lobster from Larsen’s Fish Market on the dock while watching the sunset, and make a requisite stop to the famous Black Dog Cafe before your visit ends.
