Old Menauhant, a private enclave of 100 homes connected by dirt roads, slow moving cars, many bicycles, and a few golf carts, is located on a protected estuary with direct access to Vineyard Sound.

In July and August the Menauhant Yacht Club (for a membership fee) offers tennis, and two large, private beaches. There is also a large, public beach within easy walking distance.

Nearby Falmouth, Mashpee Commons, Woods Hole, and historic Sandwich all provide a variety of shopping, restaurants, and other attractions. Ferries to Martha's Vineyard run regularly from Falmouth and Woods Hole and a ferry to Nantucket sails from Hyannis (17 miles away). Whale watching tours also run from Hyannis in season.
