The island is located a little more than 1 km off the south-west sore of St. Andrews and can easily be viewed from the town. The island provides a scenic backdrop for St. Andrews and hosts the Navy Island Nature Preserve and Conservation Easement as well as the Leigh Williamson Conservation Easement. Initially settled by loyalists before the formal settlement of St. Andrews was established, remnants of these inhabitants can still be seen today. The island is also an important habitat for birds, both local and migrants, as the rapid changes in the tides bring a plethora of nutrients to the surface. The island can only be accessed via boat or kayak from the nearby St. Andrews wharf.
