Gay Head Cliffs and Lighthouse

The magnificent multi-colored clay Gay Head Cliffs in Aquinnah are a National Landmark and for years were a favorite for those wanting a challenging climb from the beach at the bottom. Today, however, climbing is off limits due to the toll this was taking on the face of the cliffs. Aquinnah is celebrated as a center of Wampanoag Indian culture and a source of pride and tradition among members of the tribe. You’ll find some Indian craft shops at the top of the cliffs.
