A tiny summer community that dates to the late nineteenth century, West Chop is primarily an area of large homes facing the sea on one side and is bordered by the downtown historic district. Mink Meadows Golf Club, a historic lighthouse, and a U.S. Coast Guard station are located here. West Chop Woods, a public conservation property, is enjoyed by walkers.
