Its other, smaller islands are surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. The area was first settled in 1623 and was considered a parish of Portsmouth. In 1693, it was renamed New Castle and incorporated as a town. The highest point of New Castle lies at the Wentworth by the Sea Hotel, where the elevation reaches 60 feet above sea level.
