I think walking across the flats at low tide to access this island is a Marblehead "must do" for reasonably fit families. You can climb to the rocks and enjoy a view past Salem Harbor to the islands further off and see all the sailboats in their glory. It's such an accomplishment to be on an island normally surrounded by... More

This is a breathtaking island that can be accessed during low tide during the summer months. It is a great sit back and sun and splash in the water destination. It gives you a little time to explore the rocky coast and more.

It's at the very end of Harding Lane that the pathway starts (there is a sign there)... check online for low tide times and just walk on over! It's great! To your right there is... More

This is a very pretty island, easily accessible by kayak from Marblehead (or can walk to it at low tide, I've read but have not seen). Nice place for a picnic, sunning, views, and even a swim. Highly recommended! Just a note - No services of any sort available on the island.
