Whether you’re coming for a day trip or staying overnight, this humble island colony of just 64 year-round residents is ready to welcome you with open arms.

How to Get to Monhegan Island

Where to Eat and Drink on Monhegan Island

For a place the size of Monhegan, there are a surprising amount of delicious places to eat.
