Beaches on Martha’s Vineyard

Norton Point

I don’t know about you, but by this time of year I can not wait for summer. I want to be lying on the beach soaking up the summer sun, and fishing. One of my favorite memories is when my whole family would drive out on Norton Point and spend the day fishing, playing, having lunch, and just being together. I miss that, but I’ll forever cherish the memories.

The beaches on Martha’s Vineyard are incomparable; with each one having their own unique attribute. Each beach may be the perfect representation of the New England seaboard, but there is just something about them that are incomparable with the rest of New England. They are pristine, untouched, meticulously cared for to keep them as protected as possible, yet they are open for everyone to enjoy and create wonderful memories.

There is a beach here for everyone. On the north east side (or the lee side for those nautically inclined) the beaches tend to be naturally protected, allowing for clear, calm, and shallow waters. On the other side of the island, the south west side, you’ll find long stretches of beaches that tend towards strong riptides, larger surf, and even clay cliffs.


There’s no way to describe why they are so different and magical, my only advice is to get out and experience the magic of our beaches. Stay tuned for posts highlighting individual beaches.



I hope you check out some one the amazing beach houses we have available for the Martha’s Vineyard 2013 season.
