Don't miss this view.

Fun drive out--had to drive around and wait a bit for parking but a spot opened up quickly. Stunning view that even impressed teens. A don't miss when on the island.

It is a nice view, with a good beach. It is a place that you could meet with the nature. The place has a good vibe. Perfect scenery

My husband and I had a long walk on the beach early in the morning. We put our towels down to catch some rays. Totally shocked to see all the nude sun bathers who arrived. Someone needs to put up signs alerting the public. We saw several young people who were shocked to see naked men and women on this... More

Beautiful view of the cliffs. Nice to see such diverse terrain on the small island. It was a beautiful day and the sun was shining so the detail was clear in the cliffs. We had lots of fun with photo ops here. On a side note, if you are looking for food, the restaurant closes at 11 then reopens at... More

Maybe I'm missing something here, but I was disappointed. I was only on the island for the day with my boyfriend, and we had been to MV once before together and wanted to try something different. We were warned that it would take about an hour to get to Aquinnah from Oak Bluffs via bus and were fine with that.... More

Really enjoyed viewing the cliffs and the light house. Parking is difficult, but still worth the trip. We didn't go for sunset, but I image it would be a great place to take it in

A must see! Simple to get to by the VTA bus and worth every minute. You can see the cliffs and also visit lighthouse, along with some shopping and food

So glad we made the gentle climb to the top. The view of the cliffs as well as the beach was nature at its best. Glad there was signage at the top explaining the significance of this area.

We visited the cliffs as part of a day tour we were on. If you've ever traveled to the Oregon coastline, the cliff reminds me of that area. You had to walk uphill to reach the cliff, but the path was smooth. The view overlooks the white cliffs with a lighthouse on top and the blue-green waters. It's a picture... More

Unfortunately the weather didn't give this place justice. We arrived and planned on spending a couple hours, upon arrival we realized this was basically a lighthouse on a cliff. Decent little shops to duck into during the rain storm, trinket shops and a couple food stalls. Make sure the weather is nice before you plan on visiting.
