A Martha’s Vineyard summer is an unforgettable experience- here are some of our favorite ways to enjoy it.

Only at the Winnetu

Summer at the Winnetu is iconic. Situated in Katama along miles of beaches at the island’s southern coast, scroll down to see what’s waiting to bring summer to life outside our front door. 

Summer Longer, In September

Insiders know that September is the best month to be on the island. Enjoy spectacular summer weather, fewer crowds, and wonderful sense of quiet relaxation throughout the island. Many of Winnetu’s experiences and amenities are available throughout September.
