It is said that Native American, Tom Nevers, searched for whales from a high cliff overlooking the south shore and nearby east end on this beautifully rustic section of the island. From the rolling, open spaces to pitch pine and scrub oak barrens, Tom Nevers maintains the distinction of being remote yet accessible to Mid-Island and Town just off Milestone Road.
The homes in this area are typically on larger parcels and often enjoy distant ocean vistas and evening skies. The beach also enjoys a nearby playground and a large open field that hosts the Fall Fair. Tom Nevers is also home to beautiful south shore beaches and is a favorite spot to fish for striped bass and bluefish in the summertime.
