Just south of Fortunes Rocks is Granite Point, boasting several private coves consisting of sandy beaches. These beaches are perfect for total privacy and also for small children as the waters are calmer in these inlets. You are only a short walk away from cove areas and boat launch for boating and kayaking. The Timber Island trail is at the end of Granite Point Road which is a part of the Rachel Carson National Wildlife refuge. It is a 1.4 mile loop that is only accessible at low tide which leads you to Timber Island. This scenic loop passes salt marshes, cattail marshes, mudflats, and rocky shores. Off the rocks or from the shoreline the cove beaches and point offer great fishing and beachcombing. Granite Point is a great location for walks and biking. Rescued seals from New England beaches that have been rehabbed at the University of New England or the New England Aquarium in Boston are often released back into the ocean from Granite Point.
