    Located on the southeastern side of Martha’s Vineyard, this elegant seaport village has preserved its colonial homes built by the whaling captains.

    Stroll along Main street where you will find delightful restaurants, quaint boutiques and art galleries in a true New England style. Main street leads out to the pretty harbour and yacht club (a favourite of yachtsmen).

    Take a 15 minute walk from downtown to see the Edgartown lighthouse surrounded by stunning scenery.

    South beach is just one of its stunning beaches with its miles of sandy beach to get away from it all.

    Outdoor enthusiasts appreciate South Cape Beach State Park, where sunbathing, fishing, swimming and hiking are popular pastimes.

    Edgartown was used as the main shooting location for the town of Amity in Steven Spielberg's 1975 blockbuster Jaws. Many landmarks and buildings in Edgartown that were filmed in the movie can still be seen today.
