Menemsha is a fishing village located on the western side, or Up-Island side of the Vineyard.
It’s the sunsets, of which these pictures do not do justice, that draw many people to Menemsha. They are spectacular and it is by far the best place on Martha’s Vineyard to experience them. People come with chairs, blankets, wine, food and loved ones… or just a camera. Applause sometimes rings out as the sun disappears behind the cliffs of Aquinnah.
A visit to MV should definitely include a trip to Menemsha at sunset.
