Chappaquiddick can be reached by taking the very short ferry boat to the island from Edgardtown. If you haven't a car or bike there's not much to see, although there is a small beach. But if you do have a car there are glorious beaches,...More

Lots of history. Super expensive. No stores on the island. Everything is by ferry or boat. If the ferry stops you are stuck. If you need a plumber you will pay his fee plus ferry costs for his truck!

Nice views. Don’t drive your vehicle onto the beach unless you have the proper vehicle. You will be fined and you will get stuck. Saw this happen.

Great place for a leisurely drive. Take the small 3-car ferry from the center of Edgartown. Rural, residential island with beautiful views. Protected land. No shops, restaurants or hotels. Some dirt roads. Must see the infamous bridge. Cool place like nowhere else. Worth a trip.

It was a beautiful day! We only stayed at the beach a short time, but the views were amazing and it was very clean!

We drove down to Wasque Point, wandered My Toi gardens, and took the Cape Pogue Lighthouse tour. Bouncing down the beach in an open truck bed was a cool way to see the sights.

The Chappy Ferry ride only takes a few minutes, 3 cars at a time ($12/car and one driver; $4/additional passenger). Definitely recommend you either take a car or a bicycle. There are no businesses on the island, so pack lunch or snack. Many of the...More

The best part of Chappy is the ferry over. Quick and efficient and fun by car, bike or foot. We biked for around an hour and honestly didn't see much. Paved road turns into sandy tough terrain before both reservation areas, so not great on...More

Rented a house for a week & loved this location. Very quiet, secluded & relaxing. Explored the beaches & trails. Visiting in September - we had the beach all to ourselves one day. Great place to get away from it all.
