Wood Islands is the first view of the Island one sees from the deck of the Northumberland Ferry. The bright red soil, green grass, fishing shanties and the lighthouse guarding the harbour, are an unforgettable site.
Close by are two Provincial Parks, Wood Islands Provincial Park and Northumberland Provincial Park. They are open for all to enjoy, beach walks, shell collecting, swimming and more. Northumberland has barbecue shelters and a playground for everyone.
