The tiny island of Martha’s Vineyard is a picturesque holiday destination, attracting yacht charterers throughout the summer as well as year-round residents who enjoy its creative atmosphere and the relaxed pace of life. With its scattering of quaint towns and pretty villages you can be sure to find the holiday experience you crave, whether you are interested in spending time on the region’s beautiful beaches, fishing over its well-stocked waters, or exploring its rich cultural history. Likewise, those with a gastronomical agenda and shopaholics alike will be amply catered for on their Martha’s Vineyard vacation.
Accessing Martha’s Vineyard by ferry can be difficult, and so the area has come to attract Boston’s wealthy seafarers whose opulent mansions are seen on the shores of the island as you approach by sea.
In Martha’s Vineyard, sailing is a way of life, and every July the Edgartown Yacht Club Regatta attracts world-class racers to the island, whose beautiful yachts will be seen cruising the blue waters in spectacular fashion.
The pristine beaches and cliffs make Martha’s Vineyard a haven for outdoor activities, and walking or cycling is a pleasant way to explore the area in the summer. All year around, the cultural and historic attractions, restaurants, galleries and one-of- a-kind boutiques will mean that you are never short of things to do here.
Martha’s Vineyard’s charming villages boast strong artistic communities, seen in the architecture of the buildings and the profusion of local galleries showing and selling fabulous artwork and craftware to take home as a memento of your time spent here. Taxis are plentiful but many choose to explore the island by bicycle or scooter. Visit the Black Dog Tavern in Tisbury for some of its famous Chowder, then head to Edgartown to admire the mansions left over from the whaling era, and some of the island’s grand churches. For a seaside visit, Oak Bluffs offers miles of beaches, and the multicoloured ‘gingerbread’ houses in the Methodist grounds are an impressive sight. Its vibrant communities are home to artists and musicians alike, and no cultural trip to Martha’s Vineyard is complete without spending some time at the Bunch of Grapes – one of the world’s finest bookshops which can be found in the village of Tisbury. In the evenings, the sunset from your charter yacht over the pastoral landscape of the East Coast will be an unforgettable sight.
