Willow and elm trees overlook the island accompanied by an abundance of wild berries, such as raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries, that provide food for the local wildlife. Although a fortification was never built on the island, it was the site of a Revolutionary War skirmish called the “Grape Island Alarm”. Since it was never used for industry or defense, Grape Island has retained its serenity and natural beauty.
Today, Grape Island is a favorite spot for any outdoor enthusiast. Marvel at nature’s beauty by taking a seaside walk, enjoy a camping adventure, or have a relaxing picnic as you take in the sights of the island. This destination is ideal for hiking, sea kayaking, bird watching, and exploring nature.
