An Important Message to Our Visitors

November 30, 2020

Dear Friends,

Martha’s Vineyard is best known as summer destination, but the Island offers opportunities to comb miles of ocean beaches, hike and bike on an extensive network of trails and explore charming and varied neighborhoods all year round. Whether you are planning a future trip or have a hankering for a quick get-away, you’ve come to the right place.

Though the Island is quieter these days, many hotels and inns, restaurants, retail stores and art galleries remain open, with safety protocols in place.  This list of what’s open and what’s closed is being updated daily.

Martha’s Vineyard and the state of Massachusetts take the risks of the coronavirus very seriously. Visitors and residents returning from states considered higher risk for Covid-19 are  asked to fill out a state travel form and either quarantine for 14 days or show proof of a negative Covid-19 test administered within 72 hours of your arrival. Masks are required in all public places.

We invite you to tour our site, making note of the many wonderful attractions of Martha’s Vineyard, but be sure to check on their status before you come to avoid disappointment. And be sure to visit our sister site,, for the latest news from the island.

Thanks for stopping by!
