About South Beach - Katama: South Beach is one of the most popular beaches on the Island. It's a free and public beach located in the southern, Katama area of Edgartown and facing the Atlantic Ocean. It is a barrier beach, which means surf on one side and a calm protected pond on the other. The surf can be fairly rough, which is fun for body surfing, but it's not great swimming for young kids.

Katama Beach, right at the fork. Great waves for body surfing. Smooth clean white sand. Don't forget your suntan lotion.

Oak Bluffs Beach is great for a few hours of the beach life every day. South Beach is a slight upgrade and only 3 or 4 miles away [from Vacation Rental ID 23663] by car or bus.

South Beach is very clean and beautiful. The water can be very rough at times, which older kids love for the waves, but it might not be so great for younger kids and older adults when it is rough. Great for everyone on calm days.

This is a great beach for waves. The undertow will knock you down but once you get to the other side of it, you could spend all day jumping/riding waves as they come in on a regular basis. There are public rest areas and changing rooms (no shower).
