Aquinnah (formerly known as “Gay Head”) is at the very tip of Martha’s Vineyard, and is the tribal home of the island’s original settlers, the Wampanoag. It’s also home to the ever popular attraction of the lighthouse and the colorful clay cliffs below, as well as some of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Homes here are often sparsely placed along dirt roads, many of which have breathtaking views.
Within Aquinnah you’ll find properties on Vineyard Sound, Squibnocket and Menemsha Ponds, as well as the areas of the cliffs, Lobsterville and Moshup Trail.
