Insider’s Tip: Lambert’s Cove beach is one of the loveliest spots on Martha’s Vineyard. Though not visible from Lambert’s Cove Road, it offers a small parking lot which is restricted to cars with town resident parking permits from mid-June through mid-September. Two things to note: parking is permitted for everyone between mid-September through mid-June, and in-season before 10 am. It’s a wonderful place to walk for literally miles along the beach, and even has a spot where well-behaved dogs can run off-leash. But please, follow the posted rules, especially following the restrictions of no dogs after 10 am and cleaning up after your pet.
