Monhegan Island is famous for its beauty, and it is a popular destination for artists. To get to the island most people take the mailboat, which departs from Port Clyde. The beach where people swim is a little cove close to the arrivals dock. Coming from the dock, walk straight up Wharf Hill Road to get onto Main St., and take a right, and then take another right onto Swim Beach Road. There is a small sand beach surrounded by rocks. The island also has hiking trails to explore, and lots of cute shops and restaurants. The swimming area is nice, but the rating is for the overall experience.
