Cliff Island could be considered the quintessential Maine Island. Cliff has deep woods, abundant wildlife, picturesque coves and some of the most beautiful beaches in the bay, all privately owned.
Cliff Island is primarily known for its H shape, as well as its reputation for being the only inhabited island in Casco Bay with no paved roads. The roads are made with sand and they get fixed once a year. The roads are perfectly fine for cars.
When you stop at Cliff, you get the feeling that time has passed this place by. It lies nine miles out in Casco Bay and is the farthest out populated island that Casco Bay Lines services.
There is a small year-round population and a summer community of around 500.
