Directly across the street from Eastville Beach is Doug's Cove Preserve, a small property managed by the Martha's Vineyard Land Bank. This is a dog friendly property with a trail and beach access to the lagoon.
Doug's Cove is ideal for a picnic and this protected piece of land offers a completely different landscape from Eastville Beach. This is a great place to launch a kayak or stand up paddle and explore the nearby ponds. Be mindful of the channel markers, as this is a very active passage in and out of Vineyard Haven Harbor for motor boats of all sizes. Parking is very limited at this property.
