If you prefer to swim without waves, this is a really nice beach. I recommend staying for sunset—bring a picnic.

If you're able to get out to the very tip of the island, you'll see Great Point Lighthouse, and most likely, a lot of grey seals basking in the sun.

Neighborhoods

A quaint and historic fishing village that remains similar to what it looked like in whaling days. If you are visiting in June, the cottages will be covered in roses.

All the way on the west end of the island, this is a casual restaurant for good TexMex, and the best spot to see the sunset. But it gets crowded!

Bars and Music

Local brewery with live music and food trucks. This is a popular spot, so I recommend grabbing the Brewery shuttle from the Visitor's Center in town.

Nothing fancy about this place, but it's popular, so in the high season plan to spend time waiting in line. They do have great live bands all summer though. "The Box" is an iconic bar on the island that has been around for a long time.

My favorite place to get fresh fish. They also have a great food truck in the parking lot where you can get really good fried oysters. Sit in the back for a casual and quaint after the beach spot.

Popular for burgers, shakes and truffle fries situated right at the rotary in mid-island. Personally, I get the Impossible Burger—so good!

Great sandwiches as well as amazing homemade breads. People go crazy for the Portuguese bread. They're big, so a "half" sandwich is usually plenty. Sit out on the picnic tables, oh, and the cookies are really good, too.
