Explore Aquinnah – Gay Head Cliffs
Explore Aquinnah’s remote, quiet, breathtaking scenery; home to many descendants of the Wampanoag Indian Tribe.
The magnificent National Landmark, the Gay Head Cliffs, is a must visit, with its beautiful, multi-colored clay cliffs cascading down into the ocean. Enjoy luncheon atop the cliffs. Visit the Gay Head Lighthouse at sunset on weekends and climb to the top to watch the sun set into the ocean. Aquinnah is a world-class, 23-mile bike ride from the Winnetu Oceanside Resort. It is hilly and challenging, but well worth the effort. You can bike one way and return by town shuttle bus with your bike, or bike round trip.
“Here’s a concept: the stress-free family vacation. No, it’s not an oxymoron, particularly at the Winnetu Oceanside Resort on Martha’s Vineyard. Ditch your car and prebook the VIP Island Queen ferry package, which includes guaranteed parking in Falmouth and a 35-minute boat ride to Oak Bluffs, where a Winnetu staffer will whisk you to the resort.”
