Surf Drive Beach, located on Vineyard Sound, is the closest beach to Falmouth Center. The beach is popular because of its location just south of the center. Surf Drive Beach is long with a fair amount of space. Rock jetties, calm waves and views of Martha's Vineyard across the sound and nearby Nobska Light make this a very picturesque spot. A small inlet to the north of the beach is popular with families who have small children.
