Monhegan Island is one of Maine's most unchanged and unbelievably magical natural places. Monhegan Island is 10 miles out, so it feels remote for a day trip, even more so for an overnight, with just a few quaint inns and rustic bed and breakfasts. In town by the Ferry docks, visit the few art galleries, Black Duck Gifts, casual restaurants, fish houses and L Brackett & Sons convenience store or Novelty where you can get picnic provisions. Monhegan Brewing Co will quench your thirst. 


After exploring Monhegan Island's 9 miles of trail system around the island including Monhegan Island Light and museum, walking the circular path to dramatic granite cliffs and tidal beaches, passing the shipwreck, return to the village for a fresh seafood lunch at Barnacles, and relax looking out at Manana Island and the comings and goings of the ferries and fishing boats. Monhegan is not fancy, the 70 locals are no-frills Yankees, you'll feel as if you've traveled back in time. Be sure to visit Monhegan Island in this lifetime. Spending the night at a Monhegan Island Inn or Bnb is quiet, calm, otherworldly. Boats depart daily in season from Boothbay Harbor, Port Clyde and New Harbor on Pemaquid Point.
