Visit the filming locations of Jaws
Quint’s workshop was actually a temporary structure that was torn down after filming. The lot remains though, as does the fishing port from which the final hunt for Jaws sets sail.
The opening scene, where Jaws’ first victim, Chrissie Watkins, took her last swim, in the dark of night.
Officially known as Joseph Sylvia State Beach, this is where Alex Kintner took his last paddle out to sea. Today, it remains a calm oasis, where small children play in the shallows, unaware of what came before.
Edgartown Town Hall
Known as Amity Town Hall in the film, the real town hall was used and still stands today.
Oak Bluffs Bridge
Here, you’ll find the stone dock that Chief Brody (Roy Scheider) ran across during one of the attacks. Jumping from the bridge is something of a rite of passage.
Gay Head Lighthouse
Remember the Mayor, Hooper and Chief Brody arguing about whether or not to keep the beaches open? This is where it happened, way up island.
