Definitely worth a visit. To get there, take the loop road past Otter Point and the Fabbri Picnic Area and Memorial. Continue across a bridge over an inlet (Otter Cove, you'll see water on both sides of the road). Continue to a low stone wall on both sides of the road. Park at a small, paved pull-off on the right... More

So, my family has been to Acadia maybe 25 times over the last 30 years for about a week or two each time and we have never seen or heard of Little Hunters Beach. I cannot believe it! Could someone provide a mile marker for this spot so we don't go driving past it (I don't want to end up... More

This spot is hard to find - no signs at all you just have to know the general location and look for a wooden stairway on your left side that goes down to the beach. The beach itself is very unique in that is has no sand but is totally covered in small and medium sized rocks. It actually makes... More

This spot is a little hard to find. There are no signs. It is accessed off of the park loop road (1 way portion)after otter point signs and fabbri memorial. If you get to Jordon pond you went too far. You will see a set of wooden steps on the left side of the road. Go down the wooden staircase... More

I've driven past this many times. It is so easy to miss and I'm not sure I want that to change! Beautiful wooden stairs down to the secluded, rocky beach with an added benefit of a small waterfall along the stairs. The power of the ocean is such that the rocks are all pretty symmetrical, cobbled and round. The sound... More

This was the place my kids (8, 4) wanted to revisit the most. We visited most of the typical 1st timers trip to Acadia sites and this is what my kids wanted to do again on our last day. It is a breathtaking little cove with its rocky ledges and pine trees. There is a long wooden stairway with a... More

I loved this, but had a hard time finding it. Drove past it the first day. There's no signs. If you drive past the few overlooks on the left, go a little further, and there's a little bridge you drive over, and a set of stairs next to the bridge. Park on the side of the road by the bridge... More

Somehow, after visiting Acadia National Park for 13 years in a row, we missed this wonderful little beach. I read a blurb about it in the free booklet they give away in the park stores. The article gave brief directions on how to find this hidden pebble beach along the park loop road. It is far along Park Loop ---... More

Off the beaten path. You find it by taking an out of the way path about 1/2 a mile into the shady opening that widens into a small, spectacular beach with cliffs rising up on each side, tree lined and breathtaking!! The beach is covered with rocks. Not many people stay long so often you are alone there!

After a day of hiking, this was a great place to relax. Fresh water stream creates a pool just before it spills into the ocean. Great chance to swim without having to brave the cold ocean. Then sit on the rocks and watch the ocean. Only half a dozen spots to park, so it's luck of the draw if you... More
