Our family had heard about the beautiful Menemsha sunsets, and they are spectacular, see our sunset pictures and learn more, but we also enjoyed so many other unexpected treats in this beautiful village...
The biggest treat has to be the live starfish that can be found in the shallow water near the boat docks. This area is like an outdoor, interactive aquarium for the kids! A sheltered strip of shallow water, behind a rock jetty and next to the boat docks, is a perfect place for kids (and adult kids) to find live starfish, crabs, minnows and jellyfish.
Our kids played here for hours and found at least 6 live starfish. Other kids were also finding starfish and crabs and small jellyfish. The water is shallow and in a protected area so it's a great, safe place for kids to explore.
