Peaks Island is located just a short car ferry ride away from Portland, Maine. It is 5 miles around and filled with beautiful sites and views. It is one of Casco Bay’s most visitor-friendly islands with many amenities; restaurants, grocery store, hourly ferry schedule, beaches, library, community center, and shops.
There is plenty to do right on Peaks Island, but with the hourly car ferry service, you can also easily explore mainland Portland and all its cultural and culinary offerings. Our cottage information binder has some of our favorite destinations both on and off the island.
