Friendly Island (aka Beaver Island) is the kind of place every boater dreams about. Whether it’s for just an hour or several days, Friendly Island offers the shelter and camping conveniences that make boating so much fun. Located in Goose Bay, only a little more than four miles from the London Bridge, Friendly Island has several secluded sandy beaches with ample drop-off for easy boater access. The island is well protected from wind and boat wakes, and has the added comforts of restroom facilities, barbecues, ramadas and trash receptacles.
