Sandy Point State Reservation is at the very southern tip of Plum Island, a classic Atlantic Ocean barrier island. The 77-acre park is among the state’s most beautiful and popular coastal beaches. It is also an important nesting area for the piping plover, a threatened species, and the least tern, a species of special concern in Massachusetts. Passive recreational activities include walking, beach-combing, fishing, and birding. Access is through the abutting Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. The park is approximately 6 miles from the entrance to the Refuge.
