Pleasant walk on the seashore, very nice vegetation and lots of birds and ducks. Worthwhile visiting early in the morning or at sunset, if the weather is fine...

A gentle walk from Edgartown. Beautiful views of the harbor. You can walk right up to the lighthouse. Not the case everywhere on MV. The sounds of the water and the seabirds filled the air.

We came right before peak season so it was nice to be able to walk the beach and lighthouse without a lot of people around. But the beach was not cleaned up yet so there was a lot of dead jellyfish and seaweed. The tours...More

This is a lovely lighthouse with great views from both the lighthouse and the park. If you don’t wish to travel all the way to Aquinnah to see the sunset, this is a great east coast option.

Take a walk through the park to the lighthouse. Or just enjoy it from a distance. A nice viewing angle is from the Chappy ferry or from Chappaquiddick.

Not the best beach to sun bath, but the location is very convenient as it is 10 minutes away from the city downtown.

Not a far walk at all. I'm in my 70's and had no problem. Easy walk and lovely homes with great architecture. Enjoy!

Brooke, Do you mean the Harborview Hotel that is located across from the Edgartown LIghthouse? It depends where you take the ferry to—closest would be Oak Bluffs rather than Vineyard Haven. From there you can grab a MV bus... More
