Granite Point

Just south of Fortunes Rocks is Granite Point. Many of the homes flank Little River which is great for birding and kayaking. You can paddle two miles to the end of the river or head out to Goose Rocks Beach into the open ocean.


Granite Point features several private coves with sandy beaches. These beaches are perfect for total privacy and also for small children as the waters are calmer in these inlets. Walking is the preferred method to get to these beaches. There are no lifeguards on duty. 


At the far end of Granite Point Road lies Timber Point and Timber Point Island, now part of the Little River Division of the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge. Here you will find a 1.4 mile loop trail around Timber Point peninsula where you will travel past salt marshes, mixed forest areas, a sandy cove and the open ocean. You can use this trail to hike to Timber Island, but only at low tide. There is a tide clock installed at the trailhead to help time your visit to the island. The trails are open to foot traffic only and pets are prohibited.


Parking is very limited and clearly marked.
