Address Beach Road Beach Rd, Edgartown, MA, USA

Martha’s Vineyard is a popular island for stars and U.S. presidents. It was also home to the first American deaf community, having developed its own sign language.

Located on a long arm of land on the east side of the island, the beach exploited by Steven Spielberg in Jaws has hardly changed since the late 1970s. People still come here to swim and occasionally to get a few scares. Even if in reality, the places are much safer than in the movie. Known in the XIXe century for whaling, Martha’s Vineyard has also received a number of presidents during its history. Often visited by Ulysses S. Grant, the island was also favored by Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
