  • Such a fun place to visit in the summer. Beautiful views of the many other islands around Portland. Aside from enjoying the natural beauty, there isn't much to do on the island besides one or two bars. But you can rent kayaks, it's great for biking and running, and there are tons of rocks to climb on and set up a picnic.
  • A great relaxing time driving around the island on golf carts. Make sure to check out the Civil War museum.
  • My husband and I took the 12:15 ferry to Peak's on a Monday. We were surprised how crowded the ferry and island were on a Mon afternoon; I guess that's the norm for July/August. We went straight to Brad's Bike shop. The line went really quickly and we grabbed the best bikes we could find. Tooling around the island to see the charming, unique houses and gorgeous gardens was delightful! There were some rocky beaches I'd like to return to. A great way to spend a few hours.
  • One of my favorite places in Maine. So peaceful and beautiful place to take photos.
  • Very pleased to be spending time here and making connections. Great community. Very special place...
