West Tisbury has limited options for public beaches if you are not a resident of this town, or staying in a rental home with a pass to Lambert's Cove Beach. Lambert's Cove Beach is a coveted North Shore beach with crystal blue water, soft white sand, and famously calm water (it's the closest thing you'll find to the Caribbean on Martha's Vineyard).
A great way to enjoy Lambert's Cove Beach without a permit is to access the beach during the off-season or to make an early trip before 10am in the summer or later in the evening for sunset. The sunsets at Lambert's Cove Beach rival those at Menemsha Beach and the unobstructed view from the North Shore is one of the best on-Island.
From 7am-10am during the summer months dogs are welcome on Lambert's Cove Beach. There is a large section of beach that is designated for off leash dogs. Dogs must be fully vaccinated, and be under voice control of their owners. No dogs outside of these hours and beach passes are regularly checked beginning at 10am.
