CHILMARK: COME FOR THE CHOCOLATES, STAY FOR THE SUNSETS!

Chilmark, the birthplace of American Sign Language, is home to the world-famous Chilmark Chocolates and Menemsha Sunsets. Established in 1694, the town of Chilmark boasts pastoral views with the ocean off in the distance, stretches of isolated beaches, and Menemsha Fishing Village.

Over 300 years old, Menemsha is a vibrant fishing village known around the world for its clean water where you can catch Bonito, Bluefish, and Striped Bass.

Just up the Harbor is the Menemsha pond, a destination for kayaking and paddle-boarding.

When you’re not fishing, enjoying the beach, or watching the famous sunsets, enjoy the Chilmark Flea Market – the longest running flea market on island where you can find items from Vineyard artists and craftsmen, antiques, imports, and vintage finds.
