Fishing Areas

These spots are great for fishing, sightseeing or just relaxing.

  • Breachway Breachway

    Located at the center of Galilee, the breachway is the best place to sit and enjoy the boats coming and going from the Port of Galilee and the Point Judith Pond. It's a popular place for an early morning cup of coffee, and a great place for a picnic lunch or dinner. There are lots of places nearby that offer take-out food that will taste even better on the rocks.

The "Great Gale" of 1815 destroyed the wooden lighthouse originally built on this spot in 1806. It was replaced with the octagonal brick lighthouse that stands on the site today. Visitors are welcome on the grounds from 9:00 to 4:00. Next to the lighthouse is Rose Nullman Park - a beautiful scenic overlook with wonderful views of the Rhode Island Sound.
