About Plum Island

Plum Island is a coastal barrier island community located on the North Shore of Massachusetts laying claim to one of the most unique ecosystems in the world and a beautiful beachfront.  Plum Island is part of both the City of Newburyport and the Town of Newbury.

Travel to Plum Island from Logan Airport is easy and takes less than an hour on most days. However, if you get caught in rush hour the drive could take closer to two hours so you might want to consider this when planning your airline tickets. Public transportation to Plum Island (Newburyport) is available, but it will require some skillful maneuvering of the local service at http://www.mbta.com/.

If you’re planning on coming to Plum Island to enjoy the beaches you’ve got the right idea.  All of Newburyport’s restaurants and shops are within a 5 minute drive from anywhere on the Island. If you’re traveling with kids, the best beach is Sandy Point. The beach provides plenty of whirl pools for the kids to catch crabs and starfish in and should keep them happy most of the day. However, entry to Sandy Point is regulated so you’ll have to get there before 8am on most days.  Also, the beach is pretty isolated, so make sure you pack some snacks for lunch.

There’s no shortage of restaurants in Newburyport, with most of them located in the city center on State Street.  Here are some of my suggestions:
