The Realtor notes the island’s location “a stone’s throw from the mainland” and the surroundings of “a picturesque working harbor” Wheeler Bay. It has a rainwater collection system that provides 1,800 gallons of water, solar panels and a generator.

Why is it called Ram Island?

Well, it could be because the island was historically used as a safe place to pasture sheep, according to the Realtor.
