Our Mission

MV Beachgoers Access Group is a non-profit organization that advocates for continued broad and affordable beach access for residents and visitors of Martha’s Vineyard alike, while being mindful of the environmental conservation and preservation that makes these places special.

Our History

The organization started in 2021 as a group of Martha's Vineyard residents, business owners and frequent visitors with common beachgoer access interests. MV Beachgoers Access Group researches historical beach use, informs the public and beach managers of current issues and problems, creates dialogue between the beach managers and the beachgoers, keeps the public alerted to closures and other issues, advocates for responsible and safe public beach access, and supports reasonable environmental management to preserve these special natural places.
