Monhegan Island, Wells Reviews - Write a Review

  • An amazing highlight during our Maine vacation! We took a windy boat ride (wear sunscreen) out to this preserved island which depends on its own generator and solar panels for electricity, with only around 60 inhabitants. Beautiful hiking trails lead to amazing coastal views. Enjoyed a delicious lobster roll on the beach from the local lunch shack. Take time to talk with some locals to find out cool details.

  • What a special little place. Really neat to spend a day or weekend. Be careful of rough water on the ferry to and from.

  • Monhegan Island is an authentic Maine experience. Visiting this place is like stepping into an Andrew Wyeth painting. If you are looking for bustling commercialism and craft shops this place is not for you. There are some local artisans selling their wares but most people come here for the quiet intimacy this little island community offers...not to mention the strikingly beautiful Maine landscape!

  • Very unique and adventurous!

  • It is a beautiful island.
