Martha’s Vineyard has a history of conservation and put some good regulations in early so that development did not occur on our South Shore beaches. The dunes have been kept intact and you’ll see lots of beach grasses with rosa rugosa in your travels. That being said, we do not have many rental options on the South Shore that are beach front. There are many pond front rentals that have access to the barrier beach via boat which can be a fun adventure for your family. Therefore, it is not unusual to have a short drive to the beach or share an association beach with many of our rentals.
