West Chop to Herring Creek Beach

Trip Stop: 

The Vineyard’s northernmost headlands, which juts out into Vineyard Sound with sweeping views of Cape Cod and the Elizabeth Islands. Atop a 60-foot bluff at the very tip of the headlands stands the West Chop lighthouse. From the base of the Chop, head west on Herring Creek Road, which eventually turns to sand, to get to Herring Creek Beach, where the ocean (technically Vineyard Sound) flows into Lake Tashmoo.
