Monhegan island is a small island off the coast of Maine in the Atlantic Ocean. Even though we are small, there is beauty in the simplicity and nature of island life. Take a hike through the forest, comb the beach, or visit some of the popular local shops. Staying on Monhegan island is a time to escape the stresses of every day life and try something new and refreshing. There is something for everyone.
