Owls Head is a town in Knox County, Maine, United States. A resort and fishing area, the community is home to the Knox County Regional Airport. It includes the village of Ash Point.

When Samuel de Champlain explored Owl's Head in 1605, the Abenaki Indians called it Bedabedec Point, meaning "Cape of the Winds." Mariners would name it for the shape of the promontory, which they thought resembled the head of an owl. First incorporated as part of Thomaston in 1777, and then as part of South Thomaston in 1848, Owls Head was itself set off and incorporated on July 9, 1921.

According to the US census, the town has a total area of 19.6 square miles, of which, 8.9 square miles is land and 10.7 square miles (54.64%) is water. Located on the Owls Head peninsula, the town is on Penobscot Bay.
