Attraction details
Owner description: Jump the waves or ride the great surf on the Atlantic Ocean side of this three-mile barrier beach, or enjoy a more relaxed pace on the tranquil Katama Bay side, a protected salt pond with lovely views of the bay. Katama is the largest public beach on the island.

Nice beach, windy but clean. No restrooms! Easy access by car or bicycle. Bigger waves than State beach.

Bring your paddle board and sunscreen and a giant blanket to rest on afterward! Bus is best to avoid parking!

I thoroughly enjoyed flying my Skyhawk to Katama Airfield. Being based on a short grass strip, the 1B2 runways seemed immense. Stopped off for ice cream at Right Forks Restaurant, then taxied to the ocean end of the field. Less than a 200' walk to a beautiful beach. The small fee for using the field was well worth it. Great scenery on a flight around the island's perimeter. Crossing from the Wood's Hole area means quite a short slight over water.

Love this beach, love the Katama area, love Edgartown. Wife and I got a room for 3 nights at the Harborview and spent part of every day at Katama beach. Heaven. Going back to mv next week and doing it again.

Beach is clean and populated. Can be very busy at times so get your spot early. Not many services: no showers, concessions, and only porta potties. Surf can be rough, which was fun for us, but maybe not the best for novice swimmers. We recommend it!
