Oak Bluffs Town Beach
.  Located between the Steamship Authority Wharf and the shore of Farm Pond, this calm beach is great for relaxing, walking or collecting seashells and is located one block from the Pequot Hotel.  We are happy to loan you a beach towel or umbrella (first-come, first-served). 
Inkwell Beach.  This popular and historically-significant portion of Oak Bluffs Town Beach is within two blocks of the Pequot Hotel, just to the right at the end of Pequot Avenue.   
East Chop Beach
.  Located just to the west of the entrance to the Oak Bluffs Harbor, this small beach provides wonderful views of Nantucket Sound and colorful boating activity.
  Public access is along a footpath from the East Chop Yacht Club, just outside downtown Oak Bluffs.     
Joseph Sylvia State Beach.  
Approximately two miles of pristine public beach stretch along Beach Road between Oak Bluffs and Edgartown. Access is by bike, car, or public bus.
  From the beach, there is access across the street to the shoreline of Sengekontacket Pond. Both the pond and Nantucket Sound are ideal places for swimming and windsurfing.  Shell fishing is allowed by special permit only. Permits may be purchased at the Oak Bluffs Town Hall on School Street in the Board of Selectmen Office.
South Beach.  The primary "ocean beach" on Martha's Vineyard is accessible by public bus, car, or bicycle.  It is a delightful 8.5-mile bike ride, almost exclusively along bike paths, from Oak Bluffs to Edgartown with South Beach beyond.  If you would like our help arranging a bike rental, with convenient pick-up and drop-off right here at the Pequot Hotel, just ask.
