Photos of/from of Rattlesnake Island


Rattlesnake Island is a private island readily accessible only to the 65 members of the Rattlesnake Island Club. There are only about fifteen private and exclusive lots on the island. Most of the members just travel to the island to take advantage of the excellent and private facilities, including a bar, restaurant, large pool, health club, tennis courts, bocci courts and much more. The summer staff is 28, and there are separate dorms for the men and women working there. There is also a year-round caretaker.

These two rock formations off the west end are considered to make the island look like a Rattlesnake from a distance, hence the name.
