Take the Chappy ferry from Edgartown to Chappaquiddick, then hop on your bike and go! This island is perfect for biking: only about 3.5 miles in length, almost flat, with beaches in multiple places. Bring a small amount of cash as they sometimes have people...More

The remote shoreline here is worth the trip from anywhere --some of the most magical photos I've ever taken are from here--no place like it on Nantucket or the cape

Saw a fair amount of the island....from the beaches to wildlife. Beautiful area and the guides were very helpful.

It's a short ferry trip but it does not take long before you meet dirt roads. We made the trip mainly for historic reasons.

3 minute ferry over for $6. Japanese garden is a must. Gorgeous beaches and off street bike paths. We went for a couple hours and just explored.

Loved taking our bikes on the short ferry ride to cycle around this picturesque quiet island in the off season. Cycled east (last part on a pretty good dirt road) down to the Trustees Mytoi property and beach. Lovely afternoon!

It's a short ferry ride over to the island, but there is almost nothing to do once there, other than drive over to the famous bridge. The only store on the island has a very nice and pleasant woman working there, but that's about it

We enjoyed taking the ferry to the island and biking to the beach. Be sure to bring plenty of water and food - you can't buy anything on the island. I wished I bought bug spray, we couldn't stay long at Mytoi because we were...More

no it's about two miles down the road without a sidewalk. Do Not take a car across on the ferry during July or August as the line can take up to 2hours just to get on a three minute ferry ride.Once you get to Chappy use the... More
