Oak Bluffs is a historic resort town on Martha's Vineyard, home to sandy beaches, great seafood, unique stores and traditional cottages. The place is colorful and bustling in summer, while tranquil in winter.
Top beaches include Inkwell Beach, being walking distance to the ferry port and State Beach -- ideal for a casual stroll or swim due to its gentle current. From this beach you can get to Jaws Bridge the location of the iconic shark horror movie from 1975. You can hurl yourself off into the water here, as many thrill-seeking jumpers do in summer.
In summer, hire a kayak or canoe on the huge Sengekontacket Pond and enjoy the scenic natural beauty. Alternatively, check out one of the most historic and adored attractions in town, the Flying Horses Carousel. Built in 1876, this vintage carousel is the stuff summer memories are made of.
Another must-visit is the gingerbread cottages at the Oak Bluffs Campground. Dating back to the 19th-century, these cottages with their delicate little fences and tiny dimensions are like something from a fairytale.
For something more relaxing, take a scenic drive along East Chop Drive in Oak Bluffs and drink in the beauty of the coast on one side and beautiful homes on the other. At some point, the East Chop Lighthouse will appear before you and further down you will reach Oak Bluffs Harbor.
Visit in summer for the real taste of the atmosphere in Martha's Vineyard.
