With a population of just over 300 and just under 150 households it's just has 5.4 square miles of land and is the smallest town on the island.

The Gay Head lighthouse was built of red bricks made from the clay of the cliffs and is open for sunset tours on summer weekends. The restaurants and shops at the Cliffs are favorites of visitors and islander alike during the summer months.

To the southwest of Aquinnah is Noman's Land a wildlife refuge and to the right are Elizabeth Islands which include the island of Cuttyhunk and separates Buzzards Bay from Vineyard Sound.
