Discover Cape Cod & The Islands

A Beach Escape to Cape Cod & The Islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard

Cape Cod and the surrounding islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are considered to be a summer destination like no other. From the moment you step foot on the stunning beaches with rolling dunes, you’ll realize your some place special. With endless outdoor recreation, world-class golf courses, fresh seafood and whale watching, it’s no wonder why people love calling this their summer home.

Martha’s Vineyard is located seven miles off the coast of Massachusetts, and is comprised of six towns. There are no bridges or tunnels connecting it to mainland, so it can only be reached by air or sea. Ferry rides to the island are scenic and easy to do with multiple runs per day, or you can fly into the island’s two airports.

The tiny island just 30 miles south of Cape Cod and about 15 miles southeast of Martha's Vineyard is Nantucket. With 80 miles of beaches to explore, visitors love the unrequited charm of cobblestone streets and quaint cottages scattered around the island. Whether enjoying the great outdoors or shopping the small boutiques and quirky shops, Nantucket is a destination all on its own with unparalleled vistas at every turn.
