Beaches

Want to see where Jaws was filmed? Take a short ride to Joseph Silva Beach on the Oak Bluffs/Edgartown road. Surf is up at Katama beach just outside of Edgartown and directly across from Spain. Gay Head (aka Aquinna) is a must see with its magnificent cliffs overlooking it's beautiful beach, site of many famous shipwrecks. 

 

Sports

Kayaking, windsurfing, powersailing are just some of the water activities available to you. Island Spirit on Seaview Avenue has the best kayaks and they will turn you lose in Sengekontacket Pond. Golf on the Vineyard is the best especially on Obama's favorite course at Farm Neck Golf Club  but for those who love a less competative pace, Mink Meadows Golf Club is a diamond in the rough (no pun intended). Kite flying, hiking, biking, outdoor activities are endless on Martha's Vineyard. Martha's Vineyard Skate Park and The Martha's Vinceyard Ice Arena are also near by. 

And lets not forget the Big One, fishing. Charter a trip with Captain Buddy Vanderhoop on the famed Tomahawk or Captain Jeff on the Done Deal.  

 

Animals

Feeling the need to feed and hold baby chickens, herd cows and water pigs? Then hit up the Farm Institute. There's not a farm in the world more happy to have people help out and who don't make you pet the animals through a fence. Island Alpaca is another friendly petting farm with lots of beautiful Alpacas and a sweet farm shop. Massachusetts Audobon Society's Felix Neck Wildlife Sancutary is fun place to see MV aninmals and birds in their natural habitat. There is always a walking tour and events.
