Little diamond island
across the sandbar
This primarily private island was once known as ‘Little Hog Island’ during colonial times and is now proudly part of the city of Portland, Maine. There is a special connection between Great Diamond Island and Little Diamond Island—at low tide, Little Diamond Island connects to Great Diamond via a semi-submerged sandbar. So, you can casually stroll from one island to the other through the scenic Lamson Cove. This island is quiet, serene, and community-focused with roughly 60 homes on the island. The travel time from Portland to the docks of Little Diamond Island is roughly 15 minutes one-way.
Little Diamond Island offers great vacation and home rentals with expansive, 360 views of the clear waters of Casco Bay. No matter what budget or level of comfort, there’s surely a great spot for you to sit back, unwind, and enjoy island time.
