Menemsha is a working fishing village on the northwestern shore of Martha's Vineyard. Known for its picturesque sunsets, fishing, and laid back feeling, Menemsha is likely the best spot on the island. Several movie shots have been fimed in Menemsha, including Sabrina and most famously acclaimed, Jaws. The Menemsha jetty is well known for many prize winning fish entered into the MV Striped Bass Derby. Mostly, false albacore and bonito have been entered from this spot, however large striped bass are not out of the question.
I love the Vineyard, especially the sunsets and fishing in Menemsha!
