Bailey Island is located within the town of Harpswell, a unique coastal community which recently celebrated its 250th birthday. For decades Harpswell has been a mecca for vacationers seeking a saltwater environment, a serene way of life, and an abundance of natural beauty. Its 216 miles of coastline consists of Harpswell Neck; the three large islands of Sebascodegan (Great Island), Orr’s Island, and Bailey Island, which are connected by bridges; and a scattering of over 200 smaller islands accessible only by boat. With some of the few remaining working harbors on the Maine coast, Harpswell offers an authenticity of which we are proud.
Bailey Island a beautiful spot that provides visitors with many wonderful activities: beaches, fantastic walking trails, a Sea Life Learning Center and tidal pool touch tank, gift shops, art exhibits, and much more.
