The ferry to the island was 'cute'! The island itself doesn't really have much to see, except the BEAUTIFUL beach and the trail along the Indian reservation next to the beach!! Beach is well worth going over to visit! Of course there is the "Dike...More

Chappy is a mostly residential hunk of land that is sometimes connected to MV. "Chappaquidick" itself translates to "sometimes an island" in Wampanoag, though the only way you can really get there is by taking a very quick ride on a very small ferry. The...More

Chappaquiddick can be reached by taking the very short ferry boat to the island from Edgardtown. If you haven't a car or bike there's not much to see, although there is a small beach. But if you do have a car there are glorious beaches,...More

We really wanted to see the Cape Pogue Lighthouse. I did a lot of research and still failed. The ferry ride was nice. Very quick, great staff and not overpriced. There is only like one paved street through the island from the ferry to the...More

Lots of history. Super expensive. No stores on the island. Everything is by ferry or boat. If the ferry stops you are stuck. If you need a plumber you will pay his fee plus ferry costs for his truck!

Nice views. Don’t drive your vehicle onto the beach unless you have the proper vehicle. You will be fined and you will get stuck. Saw this happen.

Great place for a leisurely drive. Take the small 3-car ferry from the center of Edgartown. Rural, residential island with beautiful views. Protected land. No shops, restaurants or hotels. Some dirt roads. Must see the infamous bridge. Cool place like nowhere else. Worth a trip.

It was a beautiful day! We only stayed at the beach a short time, but the views were amazing and it was very clean!

We drove down to Wasque Point, wandered My Toi gardens, and took the Cape Pogue Lighthouse tour. Bouncing down the beach in an open truck bed was a cool way to see the sights.

The Chappy Ferry ride only takes a few minutes, 3 cars at a time ($12/car and one driver; $4/additional passenger). Definitely recommend you either take a car or a bicycle. There are no businesses on the island, so pack lunch or snack. Many of the...More

I brought my own. Search for Edgartown Bicycles or Wheel Happy for rentals. Most rental places can bring bikes to you if you ask
