Local Attractions And Activities: Plum Island has always attracted people who love the outdoors; that becomes immediately noticeable when one investigates local activities. Almost everything one might expect in terms of New England beach activities (like picnicking, beach combing, surfing, windsurfing, fishing, biking, boating, kayaking, whale watching, and hiking) is found nearby, as well as some decidedly unexpected things like airplane rides and lessons, glider instruction, Eco-tourism, archery, birding, antiquing, outlet shopping, fine dining, golfing, and live theatre. What sets the area apart from certain more famous Northeast US coastal communities is that the area has a far more laid-back feel and does not resemble a tourist trap. Nor does it strive to, as the local residents proudly and fiercely work to keep development appropriate and attractive while at the same time graciously welcoming (AND reasonably priced!) To our view, the best attraction is the area’s beauty and peacefulness.

Tailwinds Cottage overlooks the calm bay and basin waters of Plum Island’s northeast water’s edge, just a short 5-minute walk to the sand dunes and waves of the Atlantic Ocean. It is situated in a quiet residential area near the historic Plum Island Lighthouse (visible from the cottage). Plum Island is a delightful, breeze-swept barrier island located just off of Newburyport, MA, a town that delights visitors from around the world. A short bridge connects the island to Newburyport. The beaches of Plum Island were for many years a local, well-guarded secret, despite the fact that in 1942 the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge was established to protect and preserve the pristine environment and abundant flora and fauna of the southern 3/4 of the island. Visitors have over 8 miles of soft sandy coastline to explore and enjoy, not to mention the numerous hiking opportunities and spectacular vistas offered by pathways and boardwalks within the refuge.
