Sengekontacket, an American indian name meaning “at the bursting forth of the tidal stream,” lies next to Joseph Sylvia State Beach. And Sengekontacket Pond “bursts forth” with much to see and do. You can pull up your boat and stroll along the trails and view waterfowl at Felix neck Wildlife Sanctuary, Pecoy Point Preserve and Caroline Tuthill Preserve; stop at several deserted islands; swim in the pond or the ocean; sneak a closer look at golfers teeing off at Farm neck Golf Course and searching the water for mishit balls; weave your way through an inlet that leads to a salt marsh at the end of Majors Cove; and portage across Beach road to explore Trapp’s Pond.
