Where you’ll be

Fairhaven, Massachusetts, United States

Fairhaven, Massachusetts, is a lovely seaside community on the shore of Buzzards Bay, directly across the harbor from the famed whaling port of New Bedford. It hosts several fabulous beaches and historical features.​

Fairhaven has a rich history dating back to the days of the Pilgrims. The first naval battle of the American Revolution was fought by Fairhaven militiamen aboard the sloop Success in May of 1775. The town withstood an attack by the British in 1778 and grew in prosperity during the whaling days in the 1800s.

The town’s most remarkable features are the magnificent European-style public buildings built between 1885 and 1906 by Standard Oil Company executive and millionaire Henry Huttleston Rogers, a native of the town.

West Island is one of the South Coast's best kept secrets. Located in Buzzard's bay, this small residential-only Island offers the visitor and residents peace and quiet or access to any number of action-packed pursuits. ​​

Over half the island is State Conservation land offering many nature trails, wildlife viewing and truly impressive vistas. There are several choices for ocean access; the protected water (bayside) beach or the Buzzard's Bay beach (voted the #3 town beach in all of New England).​​
