This rural coastal part of town includes Edgartown Great Pond, Oyster Pond, Wintucket, and a portion of the state forest. Three-acre minimum zoning and conservation land have kept this area more sparsely populated than other parts of the town, and there are vast tracts covered with blueberry and huckleberry bushes. Turkeyland Cove, a public landing at Edgartown Great Pond, is a favorite spot among kayakers and shell fishermen.
