The island began in a much more humble way only inhabited by indigenous people before having summer camps and traditional style houses built. Some descendants of the early settlers still remain on the island, making use of their summer cottages in this stunning natural location.
Shelter island has featured in a self-named film, as well as popular TV shows such as Will & Grace and How I Met Your Mother, so cruise past where they shot the series and feel like a superstar!
