Explore Peddocks Island

Close to the mainland, Peddocks Island is one of the largest and most diverse islands in the harbor—featuring historic structures, hiking trails, unique geologic features, and even solar energy installations. One area is also still home to active cottages that serve as private residences. Hike around an island that has been home to American Indians, militiamen, prisoners of war, farmers, summer vacationers, and others. Go for a refreshing (unsupervised) swim. Explore an island that was home to Fort Andrews from the early 1900s through World War II.
