Wasque Reservation

Your "must-see" coastal experience on the Vineyard!

This southeastern corner of Martha's Vineyard is undergoing dramatic change due to the seismic currents which are re-shaping this coastal reservation on a daily basis. Since that April 2007 storm cut nearby Norton Point Beach in half, the resulting breach has slowly marched towards Wasque Point. The approaching breach will someday reattach Norton Point Beach at Wasque Point on Chappaquiddick's southeast corner, but before it does, expect to see hundreds of feet of beach, upland and salt marsh lost to the sea. If you are thrilled with the sight and feel of nature's unbridled power to change our Earth, you will not want to miss visiting Wasque.
