It’s no secret that Martha’s Vineyard is a popular resort destination, and with that comes visitors who want to indulge and imbibe in all that vacation-time has to offer. A question that often comes up among our visitors is where to go to enjoy or purchase alcohol, as not all Vineyard towns are created equal when it comes to liquor service.
Whether you’re in search of alcoholic beverages to stock your hotel or vacation home, or looking for a seat at the bar, you’ll need to head to Oak Bluffs or Edgartown, the only two towns with full liquor licensing laws. In Oak Bluffs, you can purchase hard alcohol at Jim’s Package Store or Our Market, both located on Oak Bluffs harbor, or the Vineyard Wine & Cheese Shop located on Circuit Avenue. For beer and wine only, make a visit to Tony’s Market which also offers groceries, prepared foods, and catering services.
Just want to grab a drink? Again Oak Bluffs and Edgartown are where you’ll need to go, as no other Vineyard towns allow you to order an alcoholic beverage without the purchase of food, or in the case of a couple of towns, not at all. When it comes to “hitting the bars” in Oak Bluffs, The Ritz is the most iconic dive bar on Martha’s Vineyard with entertainment most nights of the week that draws hordes of locals and visitors alike.
For the beer connoisseurs, there’s Offshore Ale Company, home to award-winning brews (with cans and growlers to go!), indoor and outdoor seating, and a full bar. Drinking by the Oak Bluffs harbor is a rite of passage around these parts, with a handful of bars/restaurants lining the water’s edge. Be sure to grab a frozen drink from Donovan’s Reef (the Dirty Banana is world-famous!) and make a night of it, bopping between Nancy’s, Lobsterville, the Sand Bar, Coop de Ville (beer and wine only) and Fishbones Bar & Grille. The night is young!
If Edgartown is where you’re heading you can grab wine, beer, and hard alcohol at Your Market, Al’s Package Store, Wharf Wine and Spirits, Rosewater Wine & Spirits or MV Wine & Spirits (by the Martha’s Vineyard Airport). As for nightlife, the Port Hunter and The Wharf bring the crowds and often offer live music and entertainment. The Atlantic and The Seafood Shanty both offer creative cocktails with an impressive view of Edgartown harbor.
On Upper Main Street, Town Bar & Grill is a go-to year-round destination with 18 beers on tap, signature cocktails, and any other drink you dream up. Beer lovers can indulge at Bad Martha’s Farmers Brewery, a seasonal microbrewery with savory snacks and a selection of lawn games on the beautiful grounds of Donaroma's Nursery that will keep you entertained for hours. Just steps away, Margarita lovers can rejoice at Sharky’s Cantina.
As for Vineyard Haven, home to our year-round Steamship Authority ferry terminal, there are a number of restaurants in downtown Vineyard Haven that offer beer, wine, and liquor, but it’s important to note that drinks must be ordered alongside food. Additionally, there are no wine, beer or liquor stores in Vineyard Haven. In town, Salvatore’s and La Soffitta offer extensive wine lists to pair with their Italian fare, and Mikado and Copperwork boast menus of Asian-inspired cocktails and sake. Beloved casual eatery Waterside Market offers canned and bottled wine and beer to be enjoyed on-premise or to go with food orders.
Nearby Beach Road restaurant in the Tisbury Marketplace is known for its creative cocktails, including a house-made Sangria featuring cucumber, melon, and mint basil-infused white rum, Vinho Verde, and ginger as well as Love & Happiness with strawberry & ginger Espolon Blanco Tequila, lavender agave, lemon. Pair your libation with some of the freshest seafood on Martha’s Vineyard while enjoying views of the Lagoon. If enjoying a crisp glass of white wine on a private beach sounds like vacation bliss then check out Garde East on Vineyard Haven harbor. The sophisticated menu is inspired by the best the Island has to offer - fresh seafood and local produce - complemented by over 500 wine labels.
When it comes to visiting and dining at our up-Island towns including West Tisbury, Chilmark, and Aquinnah your options for alcohol are far more limited. There are no bars or wine, beer or liquor stores in any of these three towns. State Road restaurant in West Tisbury is the only formal restaurant in town and the only establishment that serves beer and wine (and wine cocktails!) with dinner. Head up to Menemsha where you’ll catch one of the Island’s most amazing sunsets over a seafood dinner on the sand provided by one of our local fish markets. Remember to bring your own wine since there’s no alcohol served in Menemsha eateries. Nearby Chilmark Tavern is BYOB, so be sure to bring any wine, beer, or hard alcohol with you as Chilmark is a dry town and you cannot purchase any alcohol in town.
Heading further up-Island to Aquinnah the Outermost Inn is the only other place you’ll find an adult beverage. This beloved restaurant is known for its sprawling lawn and impressive views; it offers a wine list, beer list, and fine cordials to complement its dinner menu. Reservations are required and coveted! Be sure to arrive early to enjoy a drink outside.
We hope that helps you make sense of all the different rules and regulations around enjoying alcohol on Martha’s Vineyard. Cheers to a fabulous stay on the Island!
Be sure to check mvy.com for updates on the Martha’s Vineyard Food and Wine Festival and the Martha’s Vineyard Craft Beer Festival which take place annually in the spring and fall respectively.
Visitors hail from all over to get a look at Martha’s Vineyard’s beautiful beaches and stunning shorelines and there’s no where to get a better view than from a boat! Of course, most visitors arrive by ferry, but taking a quick ride over to get here isn’t the same as spending a full leisurely afternoon on the water, soaking in all the sights and sounds from the best vantage point there is.
When it comes to enjoying a day on the water you’ve got options. For the avid or novice angler, there’s a wide selection of Martha’s Vineyard Fishing Charters, guided by local fishermen, supplied with gear and bait, and during which you’re almost guaranteed to hook a catch while aboard. Since some of the best fishing grounds in New England are known to be off the coasts of Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod, and Nantucket if you’re into fishing and in the area you won’t want to miss the opportunity to put a line in the water! Consider a trip to Martha’s Vineyard for the annual Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby that takes place every September through October.
If a more relaxing day out to sea is what you’re after, consider a leisure charter where you can learn about the Island, do some sightseeing and just take in the natural beauty of Vineyard Sound and beyond. Keep in mind, many excursions can be customized and many boats can be booked for private events like birthdays, and bachelor/bachelorette parties etc. Here’s a round-up of some of our local Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce members that can help you prepare the perfect day at sea!

While getting to Martha’s Vineyard can pose some challenges the trip is always worth it! The beautiful beaches, world class restaurants, rolling hills, rustic charm and relaxed Island vibe are reasons thousands of people continue to visit year after year to share in the magic of Martha’s Vineyard. While there’s extra logistics involved in getting here the payout is huge–the mainland just can’t compare. Martha’s Vineyard is a small island located just 7 miles from Cape Cod. There is no bridge, and no tunnel, meaning there are only two ways to get here, by air or by sea.
Cape Air offers daily, year-round flights from Boston, and additional seasonal service from New Bedford, Hyannis and Nantucket in Massachusetts, New York’s JFK, ZYP and Westchester, New York. The Martha’s Vineyard Airport code is MVY and the airport is located in the middle of the Island, at 71 Airport Rd, West Tisbury. Taxicab and car service pick up is available from the airport (we recommend planning in advance), as well as bus service from the Vineyard Transit Authority and onsite car rental options trough Avis, Budget, and Hertz.
As for commercial airlines, Delta provides seasonal flight service direct from New York’s LaGuardia airport to Martha’s Vineyard select days of the week between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

If you decide on taking your car, be sure to contact the Steamship Authority as soon as you know your travel dates to make a reservation–their summer schedule can book up months in advance. If you are walking on, you will need to park at one of the designated Steamship Authority parking lots where you will park your car and board their complimentary shuttle. The shuttle runs frequently and brings you to the ferry terminal in Woods Hole where you will purchase your passenger ticket and board the boat. Allot at least 30 minutes to park, take the shuttle, and purchase your ticket before the scheduled boat’s departure.

Did you know there are over two hundred miles of public trails on Martha’s Vineyard? There are so many that there is even have an app for it! Whether you’re taking a scenic stroll, walking the dog, hiking, or biking, the Island has it all. We’ve included a list below of several trails that the whole family can enjoy, even with a stroller!
Though strollers are great options for friends and families with children who are not quite ready to explore the outdoors on foot, we know trying to pinpoint what trails are stroller-friendly can be difficult, so we've pulled together this super simple list of over ten trails all over the Island. We hope you have fun exploring the most popular stroller-friendly trails on Martha’s Vineyard with this hand-curated list!
Sheriff’s Meadow Sanctuary. Just outside downtown Edgartown sits this beautiful getaway that lives up to its name. Sheriff’s Meadow Sanctuary is an 18-acre property owned by the Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation. Since April 2021, the Sanctuary has been hosting a storybook walk with the Edgartown Public Library. Each month, a new children’s book is chosen and pages are placed along the Brooks Trail, starting off of Plantingfield Way. The storybook walk is roughly a half-mile, but the scenic views of Ice Pond and the ocean might keep you walking for longer.
Nat’s Farm. If you’re in the West Tisbury area, Nat’s Farm is a great place for the family and is very stroller-friendly. Located off Old County road, the farm covers 56 acres of meadow, pasture, field, and oak woods. A wide and flat trail loops around a large northern pasture that houses a handful of horses from the Martha’s Vineyard Horse Center. There are even a few activities and puzzles for all members of the family to enjoy while on their walk!
Island Folk Pottery Sculpture Trail. This trail might not be the best if you have a wide stroller but is worth checking out in any case. Located in Chilmark off Marion’s Way, children will especially love this one for the enchanting atmosphere. Fairy houses, dragons, tree spirits, and other characters can be found along the half-mile trail. The trail was made by the owners of Island Folk Pottery, Bill O'Callaghan, and Heather Goff. At the end of your walk, consider checking out their pottery studio. You may just bring a little magic home with you!
Wallen, Preston, and Shands Preserve. Looking for some stunning ocean views? This loop trail in Aquinnah will not disappoint! Atop the Gay Head Cliffs, this trail connects the Aquinnah Cultural Center, Moshup Beach, and the Land Bank’s Aquinnah Headlands Preserve. The trail itself is flat with a wide path that shouldn’t give you much trouble. It’s also dog-friendly!
Blackwater Pond Reservation. This trail is located off of Lambert’s Cove Road in West Tisbury and follows four different ponds: Blackwater Pond, Northern Duarte’s Pond, Southern Duarte’s Pond, and Turtle Pond. The Blackwater Pond Reservation trail is considered very easy with a very flat and wide path that narrows once you get into the woods. There is a beautiful wooden bridge that crosses Duarte’s Pond, and if you get there in early spring, you might even catch hundreds of lily’s blooming on the water! This is a perfect spot for a scenic stroll and a picnic with the family.
Sepiessa Point Reservation. This trail is located in West Tisbury off of Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road and is best if you have a buddy. Towards the beginning of the trail, there is a short segment where a stroller will have to be carried, but once you get past that it is smooth sailing! Sepiessa takes you out to the stunning Tisbury Great Pond and if you’re lucky, you may catch a glimpse of some swans, ducks, plovers, and even ospreys!
Quansoo Farm. Located on Tisbury Great Pond and Black Point Pond, Quansoo Farm in Chilmark has a trail that follows the perimeter of the property and accompanying Quansoo Preserve. This trail is fairly wide and has a truly unique landscape, ranging from meadows, fields, and woods filled with gnarled oaks. This walk is both breezy and breathtaking and definitely worth the trip!
West Chop Woods. Less than a mile and a half from downtown Vineyard Haven, the West Chop Woods offers over one and a half miles of marked walking trails. If you’re around in the springtime, this is the perfect spot to catch a glimpse of a rare pink Lady Slipper!
Huckleberry Barrons. If you’re looking for a short and peaceful experience, Huckleberry Barrons in Katama is a great loop trail with several areas to rest and enjoy the scenery. The loop is approximately a half-mile and is perfect for hot sunny days. This wooded trail has lots of nice shade and is pet-friendly!
Fulling Mill Brook. Located in Chilmark, the Fulling Mill Brook Preserve is a very peaceful walk with a variety of local songbirds to admire. The main trail will keep you on easy terrain through woods and meadows. Be warned, the boardwalks are not stroller-friendly!
Great Rock Bight. This loop around Marl Pond consists of a very easy trail that is perfect for strollers. The trail follows the perimeter of several ponds into the forest, and the land is very well kept. The ponds are exclusively home to the rare clam shrimp, and one of the ponds is shaped like a heart! If you plan on bringing a stroller, we don’t recommend taking the trail all the way down to the beach.
Huge thanks to everyone that shared their photos with us: Kaylan Look, Mikey Waters, Guinevere Rebello, Simma Rashba, and Emily Avakian.
