Bordered by the Vineyard Sound to the north and Atlantic Ocean to the south, the mainly rural West Tisbury is the Vineyard’s agricultural heartland and a nature lover’s paradise. It boasts acres of pastoral and woodland properties separated by the Vineyard’s distinctive “lace” stone walls as well as the Long Point Wildlife Refuge, a large portion of the Manual F. Correllus State Forest, and several inlets and ponds, including Tisbury Great Pond.
West Tisbury is the perfect place to find seclusion, excellent hiking and biking trails, and artistic inspiration. And yet, its enviable central location on Martha’s Vineyard makes all areas of the island easily accessible.
