and Small Misery Islands lie in the Salem Sound.
They are accessible by a 20-minute boat ride from
Salem Willows Park (see boat schedule at left)
or by personal craft (boat or kayak) from the
mainland. These islands are relatively small,
but they are also little known, making up a much
more pleasant experience than the more famous
Boston Harbor Islands. Here, no crowd, no long
lines, and once on the islands, many places and
vantage points where you can stay alone.
