Plum Island Road Professional Reviews and Guides

"On this exploration of the southernmost tip of Plum Island you will forge your own trail around a drumlin known as Bar Head to reach Ipswich Bluffs (Stage Island)."

"Walking along dunes and beach, you’ll have scenic ocean and marsh views throughout most of this route. Perhaps the most remarkable feature is that after driving 6 miles down a dirt and gravel road along the length of Plum Island on the Atlantic Ocean, you’ll soon see that not too far across the water, a heavy residential presence crowds the shoreline, serving as a strong reminder that the same fate would have
befallen Sandy Point had it not been preserved."
