“10 Best Islands in the U.S…Martha’s Vineyard. Recommended Hotel – Winnetu”
Family Vacation Critic – 2012
South Beach, home of the Winnetu Oceanside Resort, is Martha’s Vineyard’s most popular beach destination with rolling surf that’s perfect for riding or swimming, a south-facing orientation for all-day sun and warmth, and miles of wide beach for walking, enjoying bird-watching activities or playing beach games. According to the Federal Government’s National Resources Defense Council, South Beach is “One of Only Five New England Beaches Awarded Four Stars for Cleanliness.”
Located at the southern tip of the island, Winnetu Oceanside Resort guests enjoy the prevailing summer breezes from the southwest, which help keep everyone comfortable and cool. After a morning or afternoon at the beach, Winnetu guests can either bike to town on the bicycle path or take the Resort’s complimentary shuttles to/from Edgartown for their shopping or sightseeing pleasure.
Edgartown, the Vineyard’s most stately town, is filled with whaling-era mansions, a magnificent harbor lined with boats of all sizes, and a myriad of boutiques and dining establishments for everyone’s enjoyment. The thrill of taking the Resort’s sunset water taxi cruise to town for an ice cream, or a movie and dinner, can’t be beat!
