Just past the drawbridge en route to Oak Bluffs from Vineyard Haven along Beach Road, you will find Eastville Beach. This beach has very easy access from the parking lot and has become increasingly popular in recent years. It can be a bit rocky in some areas but expect mostly sandy shores. Enjoy great views of Cape Cod and the ferry boats and tall ships of Vineyard Haven Harbor coming and going.
This beach is located on the outer Vineyard Haven Harbor approaching East Chop. (East Chop refers to a residential area of Oak Bluffs, a peninsula surrounded on the North and East by Vineyard Sound and on the West by Vineyard Haven Harbor). The inner side of the channel at Eastville Beach is a great place to watch the drawbridge raise for tall sailboats entering and leaving the lagoon.
