Amongst the East and West branches of the Westport River lie a bunch of big granite islands. There are a few moderate bouldering problems, but from what has been explored, there is nothing truly spectacular. This is not a destination spot, but it can be fun if you live there or are on vacation in the vicinity. There is the potential for 20+ moderate to hard boulder problems at the Nubble.

A boat is needed to access some of the rocks.

This is near the southernmost part of Massachusetts and is southwest of Providence.
