A Plum Island vacation just might persuade you to consider the Plum Island Lifestyle as an annual tradition or possibly as a place to call home. Plum island, is a picturesque New England barrier island located just off Newburyport, MA, and less than an hour north of Boston. Plum Island is only 11 miles long and is named after the wild beach plums that grow across the island. Even though the island is small in size, there are so many wonderful experiences to be had on this tiny piece of New England Coast. What makes Plum Island so unique is it’s array of activities available to all.
