Lucy Vincent Beach

Lucy Vincent Beach isn't one of the many beaches in Martha's Vineyard that are open to the general public. That doesn't mean that you have to be someone special to visit this beautiful strip of sand in Chilmark, however. All you have to do is go to the Town Hall and purchase a special Lucy Vincent Beach pass. You can also stay at a nearby hotel that grants access to this beach, so you might go that route. One such hotel is the Beach Plum Inn, which calls the inviting Chilmark village of Menemsha home. Coincidentally, guests at this inn can also enjoy access to another private beach called Squibnocket Beach, and it doesn't take long to walk or bike to the inviting public beach that is Menemsha Beach.

Lucy Vincent Beach is easily one of the more picturesque beaches in Martha's Vineyard, and this has much to do with the large rocks that are scattered about the sand. The surf often crashes against the rocks, and the scene is only accentuated by the small cliffs that serve as a backdrop. Most of the time, Lucy Vincent Beach Martha's Vineyard is uncrowded, and it should be noted that there is a nude section, so you can bathe or sunbathe au naturel if you please.

There are some very tantalizing vacation rentals that can be found near Lucy Vincent Beach, so you might spend more than just a day in the general vicinity. Relatively large houses figure among these vacation rentals, and some are just a short boat or kayak trip away. You can even swim over to the beach from some of the area rentals, and some have special footpaths that lead to the sand. However you get there, you will be glad that you made the attempt.
