Tarpaulin Cove, Naushon Island
Gosnold, Massachusetts


Tarpaulin Cove overlooks Vineyard Sound, facing south. A beautiful sandy beach is open to the public for the summer season. Mid summer can find hoards of boats from the local area. Swift currents demand some attention to navigation when sailing to and from this protected cove. One lone rock in what appears to be the middle of the harbor keeps the approach from becoming too boring!


A lighthouse marks the western side of the cove.

On occasion, swimming Cows mark the Eastern side of the harbor.

A solitary house sits overlooking the cove.
