The view of Martha's Vineyard which is often in a debate vs Nantucket.Picking the perfect vacation destination can involve a lot of pro and con list making. Two of the most popular New England spots both reside off the southern coast of Cape Cod. Both Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard have been attracting countless vacationers for years, and for good reason. However, there are differences between these two Massachusetts hot spots. To help you in your decision-making process, the Vineyard Square Hotel & Suites team has put together a Martha’s Vineyard vs. Nantucket cheat sheet. 

The Differences

One of the first main differences between these two islands is their size. Martha’s Vineyard is almost twice the size of Nantucket, measuring in at 96 square miles.

Martha’s Vineyard features rolling hills and high cliffs, while Nantucket is flatter. If you’re looking to spend time on the beach, both New England spots are home to incredible beaches. However, because of its larger size, there is more coastline on Martha’s Vineyard. Some of the best beaches near our Edgartown hotel include Lighthouse Beach and South Beach, which are the perfect places to enjoy incredible beach activities

The Similarities

While the two islands have plenty of differences, there are also several similarities.
  • Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard are great places to enjoy outdoor activities, like kayak tours with Island Spirit Kayak through Martha’s Vineyard waterways.
  • Both are home to lighthouses that serve as landmarks to their maritime past, including the Edgartown Lighthouse.
  • Summer is the main tourist season.
