Discover Vineyard Haven

Vineyard Haven on Martha's VineyardVineyard Haven is a charming, waterfront community nestled in the town of Tisbury on Martha’s Vineyard, although “Tisbury” and “Vineyard Haven” are often used interchangeably.  Vineyard Haven is the Island's primary port, offering ferry service to and from the Massachusetts mainland year-round.

This quaint community was once the site of a prominent whaling station and features historic homes and buildings remaining from the 1800s. These days, Vineyard Haven is a vibrant island community rich in culture.


The residents of Vineyard Haven are known to be friendly and welcoming, as many visitors to Martha’s Vineyard reach the Island by ferry through Vineyard Haven Harbor. Because of the village’s waterfront location, there is a prevalent boating/sailing scene. The Vineyard Haven Yacht Club is located along the shores of Vineyard Haven Harbor and offers members and guests access to sailing, tennis, and swimming.

This section of the Vineyard is well-known for its jovial summer culture, but the year-round residents know that this New England gem is a great place to live in all four seasons.
