Go North on Route 1 from Portland then take your third right after crossing the Martin Point Bridge onto Andrews Avenue. That will lead you over another bridge directly to the island. The gatekeeper will greet you at the entrance and let you know if there is parking (Come early on the weekends if you want to find parking, as it is scarce) and go over park rules. The main path goes completely around the island. If you start on the right near the parking lot you will find restrooms and a mini human maze, as well as the first steps that go down to the beach, The path is lined with swings and benches and more paths to the beach at several points. There is also a concrete formation that juts out into the water to create a perfect picnic spot, a creepy pet cemetery that some say inspired Stephen King, and a section reserved for children to build houses for the fairies that are said to live on the island. It creates a beautiful setting for a fun day out with the kids or just a lovely place to walk and take in the scenery. Bring your own food and drink, as there is nothing there, and you may want to stay several hours.
