About Plum Island: Plum Island is an 11 mile long barrier island just off the shore of Newburyport, Mass. The island faces the Atlantic Ocean and is separated from the mainland by a causeway / bridge that crosses spectacular tidal marshes and the Parker and Merrimac Rivers. Most of Plum Island is part of the 4,600 acre Parker River Wildlife Refuge and is on a major migratory path for many birds. An Auduon Center is just off-island. The island also has 3 restaurants, 2 convenience stores, a liquor store and deep sea fishing / party cruises, its own lighthouse and of course miles of beautiful sandy beaches. It's a little reminiscent of the movie 'The Summer of '42'.
Plum Island is conveniently located 10 minutes from Newburyport, 45 minutes from Boston, NH and Maine... only 4-5 hours to NYC. Newburyport's a bedroom community on the river with great shopping, arts, water activities and restaurants.
