Peaks Island

Peaks Island

Peaks is inside the Portland city limits, and most of the island’s year-round residents commutes via the Casco Bay Ferry. But it’s also a great place for biking, visiting galleries, or ducking into quirky sites like the Umbrella Cover Museum or the abandoned World War II hillside fortification called Battery Steele.
