Seven hundred feet of beach are preserved here at the neck of land where the Katama Bay and Edgartown Harbor wash into each other. The wash creates swift, scouring currents; swimmers will find that water becomes rather deep rather fast. The Edgartown lighthouse and the North Neck bluffs sit opposite the beach and the inlet is a parade of boats all summer long. The Martha’s Vineyard Shellfish Group leases the beach-house here and uses it as a satellite nursery, supplying shellfish spat to seed the island towns’ ponds and lagoons.

On-premises parking is extremely limited. Park in Edgartown center (or, better, park at the Triangle and hop the trolley into town) and take the On-Time ferry to Chappaquiddick Island. The property begins immediately to the left of the ferry slip.
