great little water spot on the north end of the island and watch yourself, you can feel the draw of the falls both in the current and the magnetism... do-it-yourself fun

Need a boat to access, but is a great place to hang out, party, and enjoy summer on the upper Niagara River.

Beautiful spot on the river to pull your boat in and have a good time. There is nothing here but sun, grass and water, along with loads of people having fun !

This is a point to watch the flow of river Niagara going towards the falls side. It flows real fast and seems like a glamorous heroin which is not only free of everything but also magnetic enough to grab and carry your attention.. Worth walking along the Three Sisters Island and watch this beauty..

Thank Ridhdhi P

If you like the water and the sun this is the spot. Bring your own drinks, food and fun. You can relax, meet new people and it doesn't cost you a fortune.

Great place to through an anchor out and sunbath party or swim. Very crowded party scene on the weekends. During the week it's easy to get in shallow and walk around in the water and swim. Many familiar faces every weekend. Bring what you need for the day your not gonna want to leave.

Grass Island is a patch of grass in the Niagara River (by the North GI bridge) that starts to grow in the springtime & by summer, is a nice sandbar for boaters/jet ski's to pull up, dock, and party. It is a great party spot for boaters/water goers. We love to go here on Sunday's & as the summer weeks... More

This has a couple of nice spots for taking Wedding Photos, but that's pretty much it! Unless you are using it for this purpose, there really isn't anything here and it's really not worth the time.
