If you love swimming in ponds as well as the ocean, this uncrowded public beach is the place to go. You can park you and your family on either side of a narrow sandy isthmus. On one side is South Beach with a steep incline and shore break and some good waves further out for beginner surfers. On the other is a large clean fresh water pond with a sandy beach: perfect for young kids and serious swimmers alike. There are nature trails for walking in the preserve and a 1/2 mile walk west along the beach takes you to Tisbury Great Pond, where you can play in the cut when it is open, though this beach is ostensibly private. The access is difficult, with a 2 mile drive down a dirt road off the Edgartown-West Tisbury Road near Scrubby Neck Farm. It costs $8 per person. The parking lot gets full early on weekends.
