Take a day trip to Monhegan Island

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
Monhegan Island

You’ll take a 10-mile oceanic ferry journey from either Port Clyde or New Harbor and arrive at one of Maine’s most treasured islands. Monhegan Island is home to 12 miles of trails, many with gorgeous views from high cliffs. In the summer months, the island is bustling with artists and galleries and a handful of inns and restaurants. Things dial way back in September and October, so check to see what’s open before setting out on your adventure.
