West Island of Fairhaven, Massachusetts is a small 535 acre island about 35 feet above sea-level at its highest point located off Fairhaven in Buzzards Bay. The island is about 9750 feet long by 2600 feet wide. It is small enough to fit inside New York Central Park.
Activities include boating, swimming, fishing, bicycling, kite surfing, jet skiing, hiking trails, kayaking, recreational shell fishing, Community Hall breakfasts on Summer weekends, and sailing.
West Island also has it's own weather station for real time data and live streaming web cams.

One of the first naval engagements by the US Navy against the British in the Revolution took place right off shore. Its role in World War II with the vintage observation tower visible by land ,sea and air is by far one of the most prominent landmarks in Buzzard's Bay.
West Island's connection to The Mayflower, and the changes it has undergone from a simple place to fish and graze cows has evolved into a year round community of about 365 homes.
West Island also has one of the top ten beaches in all of New England. More than half of the island is a state reservation and park. Complete weather conditions, tides, and other information is provided by the island's own weather station.
