A Checklist of Martha’s Vineyard Beach Activities

Whether you’re setting your towel out at Lighthouse Beach/Fuller Street Beach, South Beach, State Beach, or East Beach at the Cape Poge Wildlife Refuge and Wasque Reservation, there’s no shortage of fun beach activities everyone will enjoy. 

Some beaches are open to the public, while others require a residence pass or have restrictive parking, so be sure to do your research before you visit.

  • Fish from the shoreline. Known as surfcasting, this sport is perfect for anglers of all skill levels. Stop by Coop’s Bait & Tackle or Larry’s Tackle Shop to stock up on the necessary supplies and get advice from local anglers.
  • Enjoy some friendly competition by playing a game or two of volleyball at South Beach, which has nets already hung.
  • Walk along the shoreline looking for sea glass and Wampum. This is a popular expedition for those visiting State Beach. 
  • Go for a swim. The waters at beaches like State Beach are calmer, perfect if you’re visiting with younger children. South Beach’s water is known for large waves, so only strong swimmers are advised to enter.
  • See what lives beneath the surface by snorkeling. When you set off from the beach, you can swim out as far as you’re comfortable.
