A Harbor Island hub, Spectacle Island has a large marina (admission $20 to $30 per day), a solar-powered visitors center, a healthy snack bar and supervised beaches. Five miles of walking trails provide access to a 157ft peak overlooking the harbor. Special events include live jazz and Dixie music on Sunday afternoons and occasional kite-flying festivals. Spectacle Island is relatively close to the city and a ferry runs here directly from Long Wharf (hourly 9am-5pm daily, to 6pm Saturday and Sunday early May to early September).
