Katama Point Preserve

One of the earliest Land Bank properties, this tiny parcel is a gem of a place. Swimming is not permitted, but you can fish, bike, picnic, etc.

From the Land Bank’s Page for the Preserve: This property supplies a glimmer of how this part of Katama used to look, before suburbanization claimed it. It is grassy and flat, and its wide-angle waterviews extend from Edgartown center to Norton Point beach.

Getting there: Turn left off the Katama Road 1.7 miles past its split with the Herring Creek Road; this is Edgartown Bay Road. Preserve is on left 0.7 miles down this road; bicycle rack is located on-premises but automobiles must park at the town landing 750 feet beyond the preserve.
