We visited Aquinnah Cliffs on our day trip to Martha's Vineyard. This was definitely my favorite spot on the island. Stunning views! We also visited Gay Head Light which is also worth a stop. While it's certainly possible to take a bus to Aquinnah, we...More

We took a day excursion from Boston. Basically, we paid to ride on a small bus and it covered the cost of the ferry. Only gave us about 5 hrs on the island. I don’t recommend this as we were crunched for time. We rented...More

We went here to see the light house. We wanted to see all the light houses on the Vineyard. The views are so beautiful. Parking is easy and they have bathroom facilities near where you park.

This was the highlight of our trip to Martha’s Vineyard. We only spent one day on MV and to get to the cliffs is two hours round trip but it was well worth it! The views of the cliffs and beach are breathtaking!

You can rent mopeds, but the busy roads are narrow and winding and there have been moped accidents on Martha's Vineyard, sad to say. I'd suggest taking a tour bus if you just want to go to the cliff lookout shops. You could... More
