Long Point Wildlife Refuge Beach

Once a windswept prairie formed after the last Ice Age, the Long Point Wildlife Refuge now exists as a spectacular landscape replete with beaches, coastal grasslands and shrub forests. Straddling West Tisbury's coastline, it is one of the region's most reputed nature reserves since the year 1979. Easy trails, spanning 3.37 kilometers (2.1 miles) scythe through the woodland, looping along the beachfront, offering visitors a glimpse into the reserve's unique ecosystem. Although popular with birdwatchers, one can also kayak along the beach or engage in some stand-up paddleboarding.

Katama (South) Beach

South Beach, also known as Katama Beach, is a picturesque beach great for picnicking, surfing or simply getting lost in thought. The beach is bestowed with soft, brown sand and overlooks the majestic ocean. The strip of sand also features lifeguards, volleyball nets, free parking and bathrooms among other amenities. Note that even though the serene beach is touted as a family-friendly beach, the waves can get a little rough sometimes, so keep a look out for your kids while they are splashing about in the water.
