Welcome to Monhegan Island
Monhegan Island is not for the faint-hearted or the easily bored. There are no TVs, no cars, no bars and no shopping, save for a few small convenience stores. The weather is unpredictable and often foggy. The 1½-hour mail-boat ride from the mainland can be bumpy. Cell-phone coverage is spotty. The sole village remains small and limited in its services, with almost no cars. The few unpaved roads are lined with stacks of lobster traps. Do you smoke? You can't outside of the village.
