The Mid-Coast Region Sights

Port Clyde

  • Town/Village

Fodor's Review

The fishing village of Port Clyde sits at the end of the St. George Peninsula. The road leading to Port Clyde meanders along the St. George River, passing meadows and farmhouses, then winds over to the other side of the peninsula, which is abutted by the Atlantic Ocean. Shipbuilding and granite quarrying were major industries here in the 1800s, and later seafood canning was big. You can still buy Port Clyde sardines. Lobstering is a mainstay here today, and the quiet village is a haven for artists. There are art galleries here, and tucked away here. Visit Owls Head Light and the Marshall Point Lighthouse and Museum. The light has inspired artists like Jamie Wyeth.
