Nut Island

Make your way down to the pier on Nut Island, a favorite spot for fishing and fabulous views.

With beautiful views of harbor vistas and easy bike and car access, this little peninsula is ideal for a day spent by the sea. Previously used by colonists to graze cattle, Nut Island now works in conjunction with Deer Island Wastewater Treatment Plant and is a popular fishing destination. Enjoy the ocean breeze while at the pier, take a walk, or spend some quiet time fishing.
