Things To Do

Chebeague Island:

We hope that you’ll find the island as relaxing and charming as we do.  Some of the seasonal activities you might enjoy are: swimming, walks on the beach, the nine hole golf course, tennis, picnics, bike rentals, fishing, and ferry explorations of Casco Bay and her islands.

Chebeague Island has many nooks and corners that are worth exploring (map). Bring a pair of sturdy walking shoes and take some time to be outside and indulge your curious side. Walk up the path to Deer Point – located on the West End and one of the most photographed views on the island. There you will find rock formations overlooking Casco Bay. Or, stroll up the road from the Sunset house to Hamilton Beach and go wading while you look out over the islands and to the open Atlantic ocean.

—–Chandler’s Wharf—–

This wharf, where the Casco Bay Lines docks, has some of the best fishing to be found on the island. Bring your pole and have a nice day or evening trying your luck.

—–Island Riches—–

Just up the road from Chandler’s Wharf, take a leisurely visit to Island Riches, a locally owned novelty and souvenir shop.
