EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — President Obama is hitting the beach for his last day of family vacation on Martha's Vineyard.

Obama, his wife and daughters went to a private beach on the island's south shore Saturday morning. The president has been vacationing on Martha's Vineyard for a week and is returning to Washington Sunday.

Obama has kept a low profile during his stay. He spoke out publicly only once, to condemn escalating violence in Egypt. He filled most of his days with golf and evenings out with the first lady.

The first family is staying in a secluded four-bedroom rental home in Chilmark.
