MV Bucket List: Menemsha Picnic And Sunset


– [Guinevere] It is without a doubt, one of the most beautiful
places on Martha’s Vineyard. Menemsha, the picturesque fishing village with it’s active harbor that serenely sits on the far northwestern edge
of Chilmark on Vineyard Sound. Hi, I’m Guinevere Cramer
with Point B Realty. And on an island full of beautiful places, Menemsha is in a category of it’s own. In addition to it’s
postcard picturesque harbor, the sandy north shore
beach here is a beauty. Not only is it’s Chilmark’s
only town beach that is opened to non residents but the calm waters of Vineyard Sound make it very family friendly. Oh, and since it faces west, the sunset magic here is spectacular. But more about that in a minute. You can enjoy Menemsha on your own, with family, with friends. It’s a great place to slow down, and savor life on the vineyard. Whether you’ve come to
swim or fish or relax, there’s a place and a space
for building summer memories. One of the more popular things to do is picnic in Menemsha. You can certainly pack and bring your own, but in season, there are
several classic seafood shacks that add so much flavor to
this quintessential experience. There’s Larsen’s for
lobster rolls and seafood, the Bite for fried clams
and other fried goodies, the Galley for ice cream, although the lobster roll is pretty good too. The back door at the Homeport Restaurant has take out food and outdoor tables. I’m with the kids today
and they love french fries, so that means we’re
grabbing a bite at the Bite. And we all love soft serve ice cream, so next stop is the Galley. Whether you eat on the go, find a table or go back to the beach there are many ways to enjoy
picnicking in Menemsha. While magical at any time of day, Menemsha takes on a special
glow in the evening. Sunset in Menemsha is spectacular. With it’s west facing
view, you can literally watch the sun go right down
into the water on the horizon. And often with spectacular
shades of oranges and reds. People come from all over the island to enjoy this sunset tradition. So plan accordingly, as parking sometimes gets
a little challenging. Whether you make a day, an
afternoon, or an evening of it, Menemsha is classic vineyard. Add in an evening sunset,
along with your picnic, friends and family, and it’s
certainly something that belongs on everyone’s
vineyard bucket list, at least once a summer. I’m Guinevere Cramer for Point B Realty.
