Not beautiful but easy access beach with parking on the side of the road. Calm water great for kids and sandcastle building. Popular in summer (4th of July - Labor Day). A thinner beach but excellent for long walks and sunrise views. Begins at the Oak Bluffs ferry pier and keeps going to Edgartown. South Beach is the popular, sand dunes, waves crashing in island beach.

narrow and rocky- more like a waiting area for the ferry. Most people are dressed in shorts or casual wear since they are waiting for the OB ferry back to Woods Hole.

This beach has calm waters and is suitable for actual swimming. The public bus drivers will stop anywhere along this beach that you ask. Nice beach to walk and collect sea shells.

We swam here for a few hours and it is wonderful, but average for the island. Go to Katama and eat at the Right Fork Diner on the airfield. The South beach is right there and the food is tremendous. South Beach is sandy and super clear and the surf is far more substantial (family would do better at the Oak Bluffs area).

Water was very clean when we visited this August, however, the beach itself was quite littered with trash - beer cans, tin foil, and just about anything else that washed ashore or was left over from patrons.
