Jewell Island is easy to reach from the mainland, and the sense of accessible wilderness in a large urban setting is still a great lure. Over the years, however, it has gotten more and more popular with weekend boaters and has now developed a reputation as party central come Friday. As many as thirty boats congregate in “Cocktail Cove” on the northwest side on weekends. It’s best to visit in the off-season when you can enjoy pleasing views overlooking the broad Atlantic in relative peace. A circumnavigation of the island makes a lively trip, with rock gardens and cliffs and a wide view out to the Atlantic on the southeast coast.
