Menemsha Public Beach is located in the heart of the Island's historic fishing village, Menemsha. This beach is the most iconic place on the island to watch the sunset. Famous for its unobstructed west facing views, people of all ages flock to this place before the sun goes down (and many of them give it a round of applause!).
Just steps from shopping, and fish markets serving fresh fish, and cooked meals, this beach is a great place to spend the whole day. You'll frequently find fishermen dropping off their catch to be cooked and served fresh. This is one of the few beaches on the island that has public restrooms in the parking lot. Easily accessible to all ages and abilities, a visit to Menemsha is a must. Parking is limited in Menemsha, and can fill up quite quickly.
