Located on the island of Marthas Vineyard, Chilmark is the second-least densely populated town in Massachusetts and much more low-key than Edgartown or Oak Bluffs. The town includes the picturesque, 300-year-old fishing village of Menemsha, as well as two private beaches, Squibnocket and Lucy Vincent. Great fishing, kayaking, swimming, and sunsets.
