MALAGA ISLAND HISTORY

Malaga Island, Maine was once home to a mixed-race community forcibly removed by the state. Now it is a public preserve welcoming visitors to explore its history and natural beauty.

Take the kids on a walk in the footsteps of the people who once called Malaga Island their home. The preserve’s loop trail meanders nearly a mile over terrain that offers views of Casco Bay.

Boats launch from the Bethel Point Ramp in Harpswell for a nominal fee. Read more about this Island’s history here.
