Great for a quick visit in the off season from Edgartown. Took out kids and bikes and headed cross country to one of the beaches. Beautiful and easy to get around. Didn't stay long as it was freezing but loved the adventure of the ferry and feeling far away from the world. Take water and snacks!

Nice day trip on the mini ferry. Lots of outdoorsy things to do. Drive on the beach if you've got "the right stuff". There is a interesting "counter culture" there you'll just have to experience,

Wish we could've explored the island more as there is quite a few spots to see, but if you have a few extra hours, hop the ferry and simply walk along the beaches at low tide. It's gorgeous views and the water is refreshing.

Lovely fall day to trek to the salt marshes, hike. Fall colors amidst the scrub pines. Well worth the 1 minute ferry ride!

We didn't visit the beaches but did enjoy biking around the island and visiting the gardens there. Some roads are paved others are sandy/dirt.

Took a ride over to Chappaquaddick on the ferry. Was surprised at the lines waiting to go over and come back. We enjoyed walking the beach and searching for shells. Beautiful, quiet beach. Only wished we had more time.

Take the ferry from Edgartown, country roads, few cars, pastoral views out to the beach. Great excursion for a few hours.

We took the car across on the ferry from Edgartown to "chappy." The trip was less than 10 minutes.The weather was perfect. We visited the beautiful Mytoi garden. We drove in a 4 wheel drive open pickup on the dunes. Visited the lighthouse and climbed up to the light. The view from there was spectacular. The tour guides at the... More

Not worth the effort of visiting . Fine for those who want absolutely nothing because, apart from a sea view, that's all you get.
