Reviews from Real Guests:

The Traveling Wilbury: Boundary Island is absolutely gorgeous! There is lots to do here, especially if you have a family. Surrounded by nature and the sea, I understand why so many couples want their wedding photos taken here. If you want more than a day trip here, like myself, the cabins with Boundary Island Fishing Club are great. After all the day trippers have left on the last boat back to the mainland, that's when the magic of nature takes over! You can sit out on your private balcony, watch the sunset, and thoroughly enjoy the stars! Later to sleep like a baby along with the sound of waves...
