Home > Isle au Haut
This remote island is located in Penobscot Bay several miles south of the
Penobscot peninsular of Maine off the
seacoast town of Stonington, Maine.
There are very few residents and much of the island is designated park area.
A truly beautiful island experience.
More than half of the island is part of the Acadia National Park.
The remainder of the island is home to 45 year-round residents and some 200
residents during the summer. The Isle au Haut is not a tourist
destination but more of a working community on an island. There are
very few amenities for the visitor.
