Martha's Vineyard Island

Martha’s Vineyard Island lies 7 miles off the coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts. It is 9 miles wide and 23 miles long at its furthest points and has a total land area of just under 100 square miles. Martha’s Vineyard has 125 miles of tidal shoreline and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

There are six towns on Martha’s Vineyard, three up-island towns—Aquinnah, Chilmark (which includes Menemsha), and West Tisbury—and three down-island towns—Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, and Edgartown (which includes Chappaquiddick). The terms up-island and down-island originated as nautical references to degrees of longitude on navigational maps, but today they more commonly refer to the different “states of mind” of the island towns: “up-island” being more remote and laid-back and “down-island” being more active and bustling. The population of Martha’s Vineyard is approximately 15,000 year-round and 115,000 during the summer months.
