South Beach in Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard, also known as Katama Beach, has soft sand and gorgeous dunes. It’s also a fantastic place for bodysurfing. Catch a frothy wave and ride it into shore—with or without a boogie board. Beware that sometimes-fierce current can also make for a dangerous swim. Exhaust yourself with a ride, then rest up for your next trip out with a snooze. Parking is free, but you’ll have competition.
