The Ocean Views From The Aquinnah Cliffs In Massachusetts Are One Of A Kind

If there’s one thing every Bay Stater knows, it’s that Massachusetts is overflowing with hidden natural wonders, lush greenery, rocky, breathtaking overlooks, and stunning ocean views. Every nook and cranny of our state offers an incredible blend of history of beauty!

One of our state’s most iconic views is also surprisingly underrated, however: the Aquinnah/Gay Head Cliffs on Martha’s Vineyard. While these multicolored gems create a dramatic coastal scene that beckons photographers and sea-lovers alike, they’re also surprisingly overlooked as a viewpoint. But for the savvy, curious visitor, these stunning landmarks not only offer one of a kind jewel-toned views of the Atlantic from their unique white sand shoreline – they also offer pristine birds-eye vistas from a number of quaint trails and lookout points. Check it out!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

The Aquinnah Cliffs can be found on the southwest end of the island, to the west of Gay Head Light. There is also a public bus service that runs to The Cliffs hourly during the on-season. The bus schedule can be found on the VTA website
