Pleasure Island has become a RAPIDLY increasing holiday destination for the entirety of the East coast and beyond for many reasons. Because we are in fact a true island, “overcrowding” isn’t in of itself a monstrous issue. Limited parking and available housing will always create a peaceful “max capacity” that will always give a appealing (and healthy) occupancy level and ambience that, despite the “hordes”, will always leave abundant complimentary space for those looking for a bit more “distancing” and privacy. It’s an AMAZING place to visit, live, and never leave!
