A good rule of thumb for anywhere -- and especially Martha's Vineyard -- is that the best places are the most inconvenient. You have to drive 2 miles down a poorly marked dirt road (where there is often a line for the limited parking) to get here. But it's worth it. There is both an ocean (the Atlantic, but you knew that) as well as a freshwater, kid-friendly, warm, very clean, sandy-bottomed pond. And for the adventurous, a half-mile walk west takes you to the "cut," where another lake meets the ocean, forming a natural, sandy water slide that will amuse older children (up to at least age 55, whcih is my age) for an hour, besides being quite dramtic to look at.. You won't find anything like this "cut" anywhere else in the Northeast. The cut isn't always open, by the way, but even if not it's a lovely and deserted place to enjoy the beach.
