Aquinnah

Aquinnah


Aquinnah is known for its beautiful clay cliffs and quiet natural serenity and prior to 1998 the town was officially known as Gay Head. Below the clay cliffs is "Jungle Beach" for the lack of clothing worn. It's one of the few nude beaches left in the U.S. More recently, it has become celebrated as a center of Wampanoag culture and a center of pride and tradition among members of the tribe, who make up about one-third of the town's voters. This area is one of the earliest sites of whaling, done from shore by the Wampanoags, long before the 19th century industry of whaling became the major maritime industry of Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, and New Bedford, Massachusetts.
