We went to see the beach but the lady at that the gate was very rude. Not sure why someone would be so rude to the few people that were visiting that day since it was the off season.

This private beach is a gem! Great waves, secluded, and even dramatic monolithic rock formations. Oh and just past LVB, miles and miles and miles of pristine Vinyard sand! If you have, or can get, a pass for this beach (you even need a walk...More

Quiet and clean..scenic and majestic. We even saw seals occasionally. Love the bluffs above you as you’re swimming and sun bathing. Rocks galore..so pretty. Love this beach! Highly recommend.

We went once and kept going back. There was something for everyone -- waves for big kids, but not too big for little kids, beautiful sand, perfect vibe. A couple of tips: get there early. Before 11:00 if you can. That way you can definitely...More

This is a beach designated for Chilmark residents. We obtained our pass from the Beach Plum Inn. Not many reviews here due to the restrictions, but if you can obtain a pass, it's worth a few hours of relaxation. Beautiful rock formations, small cliff dunes,...More

We rented a house in Chilmark and so were able to wait the 45 minutes at the Chilmark town hall to get a car and walk-on passes for this beach. I don't recall what it cost, sorry. Nice beach. Some areas have large rocks in...More
