Monhegan is a small, rocky island ten miles from the nearest mainland and scarcely a square mile in area. It is accessible only by boat and is primarily a walking island. Since the 1800's, the island's two primary economies are fishing and tourism. Lobster traps line the unpaved roads that lead to the village and cliffs that attract so many to this special place. Monhegan Associates, Inc., a non-profit, maintains the 'wildlands' that feature 12 miles of hiking trails, leading to the highest ocean cliffs on the Maine coastline. The village is clustered on the other 1/3 of the island where visitors can find places to stay, gift shops, refreshments, and things to do. Monhegan has long been a destination for artists and art lovers and there are ample opportunities to enjoy both, including artists studios and Monhegan Museum of Art & History.
