Long Point Refuge

Whether you want to play in the ocean, splash with the kids in sheltered salt- and freshwater ponds, or explore a rare grassland habitat, this spectacular reservation will become a favorite escape. 

What makes Long Point a special place?
At more than 600 acres, Long Point is one of the largest publicly accessible properties on Martha’s Vineyard. The fact that it encompasses beach, dune, and woodland, which bracket a broad (and uncommon) sandplain heath, makes the reservation even more attractive, environmentally and recreationally. Understandably popular in summer, the property is also an off-season treasure, especially for birders and other nature-watchers.

Menemsha Hills

Experience the drama of a rocky shoreline and scenic vistas across Vineyard Sound to the Elizabeth Islands from the second-highest point on the island. 

What makes Menemsha Hills Reservation a special place?
We think it’s the variety of habitats – and range of activities – to be enjoyed within this 211-acre preserve. Climb to the top of the second-highest point on the Vineyard. Enjoy a leisurely picnic. Take in some spectacular ocean views, then take fishing rod in hand for some surfcasting. (Or just get away from it all on a quiet woods trail.)
