May 2, 2022

It’s almost Island Time on the East Coast! Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Block Island, and Fishers Island are all a short flight from Manhattan’s 34th Street Heliport. Keep reading below to learn about some of the most popular island destinations we fly to.

Martha’s Vineyard

A 70 min flight with HeliFlight

Just south of Cape Cod sits the island of Martha’s Vineyard. This little 100-square-mile slice of paradise is a prime summer destination for many New Englanders due to its serene beaches, picturesque seascapes, and colonial architecture.

The island is only about 10 square miles, so spend an afternoon renting a bike or moped and exploring the picturesque vistas. Its 1800s red-brick Southeast Lighthouse sits atop the dramatic clay cliffs of Mohegan Bluffs. Sandy beaches include popular Crescent Beach, and migratory songbirds visit the Block Island National Wildlife Refuge. Water Street, the main “downtown,” is home to several picturesque shops selling art, crafts, and delicious local food treats.


80 min flight with HeliFlight

Nantucket, a tiny, isolated island off Cape Cod, Massachusetts, is a summer destination with dune-backed beaches. According to the National Park Service, the island is the finest surviving architectural and environmental example of a late 18th and early 19th century New England Town. It’s marked by unpainted cedar-shingled buildings, many surrounded by manicured privets. The wharves and cobblestoned streets of the Town of Nantucket are lined with restaurants, high-end boutiques, and steepled churches.

Fishers Island, New York, located at the eastern entrance to Long Island Sound, lies approximately two miles off the southeastern coast of Connecticut. As a seasonal resort, the Island’s population fluctuates greatly. When you visit, let the kids ride their bikes down to the playground, the store, or a friend’s house — a freedom that’s incredibly hard to find anywhere else.
