Going Ashore

Dinghy in to the beach.

A sign posted by the Naushon Trustees, who own the islands, welcomes visitors provided they follow the common-sense courtesies expected of those who land on private islands, including no fires.

As with most Naushon properties where visitors are welcomed, access is limited to the beach.

The sand here slopes gradually into the bay, the surf is mild, and the water is relatively warm, making this a good spot for the little ones.

Our daughter has found a variety of interesting shells here to decorate her sand sculptures.

Dogs are permitted on the beach so long as they are leashed. This dog apparently thought he was invited into the picture as well.

One Hour Ashore

A picnic lunch, a swim, maybe a sand castle?

Maritime History

According to Wikipedia, the islands were used for target practice during WWII and the following decade.


There are no facilities.
