Here Are 8 Islands In Maine That Are An Absolute Must Visit

Technically speaking, there are over 3,000 islands in Maine. This includes the largest actual island (Mount Desert Island) to tiny ledges that can only be considered islands during a very low tide. There are a fair few that fall right in the middle, perfect for exploring no matter what your budget might be. Here we’ve compiled just a few options, ranging in price from “just-won-the-lottery” to “I’ve-got-a-spare-$5.”

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
