Masons Island ~ A Beautiful Coastal Paradise
Masons Island is one of southeastern Connecticut’s premier coastal communities that is located in Stonington, adjacent to downtown Mystic. Masons Island servers as a natural barrier between the Mystic River and Fishers Island Sound and is approximately 1.2 miles in length from North to South and .8 miles in width from East to West making it the largest island in the state. Its central location, equidistant from New York and Boston, offers visitors and residents a lifestyle like no other on the New England coast.
Masons Islands landscape is exquisite, diverse, and one with nature; offering sweeping views of two great bodies of water, an abundance of protected natural elements like the 47-acre Nature Preserve with walking trails, serene salt marshes filled with indigenous birds and wildlife to rocky shores and sandy beaches.
Masons Island is separated into two parts: northern and southern. The northern portion of the island serves as its entrance point and is open to the general public offering access to residential homes, multiple marinas, dockage and recreational open space. The southern section of the island is a gated community with private roads, open space, beaches, dockage, a private Yacht Club and access to Enders Island (a spiritual retreat). The Masons Island Yacht Club provides facilities and instruction for sailing and small boat racing, swimming, tennis and bocce along with many other social activities.
Boating enthusiasts of all types will enjoy Masons Island because of its location, superior dockage capabilities and convenient amenities. The island separates the mouth of the Mystic River and world renowned Fisher’s Island Sound making it a perfect spot for boating, fishing, sea kayaking and clamming. Being three miles east in the Atlantic and three miles west to Long Island Sound also makes the location ideal for Yachting.
