The sunset is fantastic; the food from Larsens' is even better! Just be sure to bring wine if you want to have some because you can't buy it there.

I can't remember the name of the beach (assume it was the Menemsha) but it had a great little fresh fish market - Menemsha Fish Market....beautiful beach and great little fish market.
