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

Rented a house for a week & loved this location. Very quiet, secluded & relaxing. Explored the beaches & trails. Visiting in September - we had the beach all to ourselves one day. Great place to get away from it all.

Visiting chappy is a little like visiting the other side of the tracks. There's nothing much to see and it's a bit of a rip off to take the ferry for 30 seconds across the water. Don't bother unless you're going to visit someone.

This is a real treat. You get there by taking a 3 car ferry. Unreal and authentic. Great trip. See the Japanese gardens. Cross the historically significant bridge to large sand dunes that present great sunsets Then travel over to the beach by foot and...More

Loved going over to Chappy on the 3-car ferry.I imagine there is always a wait, but it's totally worth it. It's a great break from the hustle-bustle of Edgartown. There are beautiful beaches - found some really uniquely colored shells - wonderful foliage and lovely...More
