Saxis Island

Saxis is perched right on the intersection of the Chesapeake Bay and Pocomoke Sound. It is surrounded by the Saxis Wildlife Management Area’s nearly 6,000 acres, attracting kayakers, trappers and anglers to one of the most pristine tidal marshlands on the mid-Atlantic. At the Saxis Museum, learn about the fading lifestyle of the Saxis Island watermen. Come hungry and feast on fresh local seafood at Martha’s Kitchen or Captain E’s Hurricane Grill and Bar. Word has it that Saxis is a top spot for beachcombing.
