This southeastern corner of Martha's Vineyard is a saltwater angler's paradise. It's also a superb spot for birdwatching and for strolls along a beautiful shore.

Wasque on Chappaquiddick is far removed from the rest of island civilization and it is just beautiful. So peaceful and wild with soaring ospreys, dunes and incredible ocean views. Worth the drive and ferry ride from Edgartown.
