Peaks Island is the most populous island in Casco Bay, Maine. It is part of the city of Portland, and is located approximately 5 km (3 mi) from downtown. The island became a popular summer destination in the late nineteenth century, when it was known as the Coney Island of Maine, home to hotels, theaters and amusement parks.

Hollywood film director John Ford (born John Martin Feeney) worked as an usher in Peaks' famous Gem Theatre, and was also a deckhand on the Casco Bay Lines ferries.

Most of the hotels were lost to fires over the years. The Gem Theatre was destroyed by fire on September 7, 1934. 17 buildings burned to the ground on June 2, 1936, including the new Union House Hotel. The only original hotel structure remaining on the island is the Avenue House, which has been converted into condominiums.

During World War II, the island was home to a large military defense installation, including the largest structure, Battery Steele, which housed two 16 inch (406 mm) guns.

According to the 2000 census, Peaks Island is home to 843 year round residents, but in the summer its population swells to 5-6,000. The island is served by Casco Bay Lines ferry service, and is home to its own elementary school and library.
