Awesome view of the cliffs which are stunning! Easy walk to the beach below for a better view! Even found some treasures at the neat little gift shops on site.

Along with everything else on the Island, this was an experience. I was on a tour of the many lighthouses on the Island and everything was amazing!

Spectacular, even in drizzly weather. In fact, the weather made the lighthouse more interesting. Easy nearby parking.

SOME PLUSES BOOST THIS BEACH ABOVE THE REGIONAL AVERAGE, BUT…. ….some negatives drag it back. The Aquinnah area is at the island’s western tip. I took the fairly lengthy bus trip there to check MOSHUP. I’d heard it was a step up on the average...More

The Aquinnah Cliffs are absolutely gorgeous! We visited recently on a bus tour of the island, and we so glad this site was included on the tour. There is also a small shopping area with Aquinnah made arts and crafts.

The Aquinnah Cliffs are a truly outstanding venue on the Island. What is so important about the cliffs is that once upon a time they were called the Gay Head Cliffs and only Islanders like myself remember that important fact!

Lots of conflicting stories on this, but I was at South Beach when some locals showed me where a bunker was supposedly located just offshore. You can barely see it- supposedly some kids drowned by it many years ago so the... More

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
