Plum Island is a wonderful vacation spot for couples and families! The 9 miles stretch of beach is one of the most beautiful in the country. On Plum Island itself, there are fishing, harbor, and whale watching expeditions; the Parker River Wildlife Refuge (bird watching, beaching - Sandy Point at the very end is a MUST); the Plum Island Grille (dinner/drinks- this is one of our all-time favorite places); Mad Martha's Beach Cafe (breakfast/lunch); and a convenience and package store. The Plum Island Airport, on the causeway leading to the Island, provides aerial plane tours. Newburyport is only 3.5 miles away, where there are quaint shops, art galleries, outdoor concerts, live theatre, many restaurants, ample activities and special summer events. Great day trips include Boston, Gloucester, Rockport or historic Portsmouth, NH. There's something for everyone!
