The Trustees of Reservations Say:
Chappaquiddick Island is completely cut off from mainland Martha’s Vineyard since a 2007 storm breached the thin, south-facing beach at Norton Point. In its remote, semi-wild demeanor, “Chappy” is truly a special place to all who visit or live here. First and foremost, there is “water, water, everywhere,” and in every direction. Access is by boat – either by private vessel or by ferry from Edgartown. Here one may find spectacular sunrises, and the equally magical spectacle of a great blue heron rising from the marsh. Sandpipers and surfcasters share the water’s edge.
