Car: Recommended

West Island is located about 5 miles off the coast of Fairhaven. Access is via a causeway, so all of the conveniences of the mainland are just a short 10 minute ride. An added bonus is no cape cod traffic!

Driving down Sconticut Neck to Causeway road, you will notice the hectic world slowly disappear . West Island is a small, mostly summer community with a laid back feeling. Although this is mostly a summer community, many residents feel the best time of year is after Labor Day. Two thirds of the 'Island' is a State Reservation, full of hiking trails, isolated beaches and salt marshes. The kayaking is excellent, as there are many coves and estuaries to explore. The shell fishing is also excellent. Bike riding is also a favorite pastime, as the roads are quiet and flat. There are 3 beaches within a 5 minute walk, and the Fairhaven Town beach is only about a 10 minute bike ride. This is one of the finest beaches in Buzzards Bay.

There are a number of restaurants nearby, including Down The Hatch Restaurant and Bar, which is part of Earls Marina. Earls Marina is a 10 minute walk. During the summer and fall months there is live entertainment most weekends at Down the Hatch.

Nearby New Bedford has a wonderful Historic District linking the City to is Whaling past. The Whaling museum, Seaman's Bethel, and many antique and art shops provide activities for those less than perfect beach days.

West Island is a true undiscovered gem that offers all of the beauty, beaches boating of the Cape, with no traffic. It is the perfect place to unwind, and the North Point is in the most desirable neighborhood.
