“Windsurfer's paradise”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Ned's Point pokes into Buzzard's Bay, and would be worth a visit for the view alone. It's major attraction is steady wind that attracts wind-surfers from all over. There is an ample parking lot.

“Good Family Recreation Area”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Ned's Point is a good place to bring the family. Many people bring a picnic with them and spend the day. There is a small beach for people to go swimming, windsurfing, and kayaking. There is a grassy area for families to enjoy flying kites, frisbee or toss a ball with the little ones. Many people fish off the rocks or lay on them to relax and unwind. Many RV's stop in and spend the day. Also available are restrooms and an outdoor shower. The most beautiful part are the sunsets behind the lighthouse and as the sun sets the beacon comes on. I love that. It is also a nice spot for a wedding. Ned's Point in Mattapoisett is a little slice of heaven.

“Lunch date”
Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Our favorite spot for a picnic lunch date---and now we take our son along. He loves flying his kite in the grass near the lighthouse!

“small town scenic charm”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I'm biased because I grew up walking to Ned's Point but now only make it here once or twice a year. The views of buzzard's bay as well as Mattapoisett harbor are nice and tranquil. Great place for a picnic and there's also a small area for launching kayaks and sailboards.

Beautiful vistas of the sea and a lovely harbor. Scenic, un crowded picturesque and unspoiled, this spot is a perfect slice of New England.
