There are really pretty rocks that are remarkably smooth. You don't need to plan on staying long, but it's worth walking down the stairs to have a look.

Easy to miss, but if you can swing it, just past Otter Point is a 2-3 car parking spot on the right with an unmarked stairway on the left. I walked past the stairs to get the photo I posted, then went down to the beach. The sound of the waves on the pebbles is much different than the sound... More

it is a pretty spot - but, for us we found not much to do once we climbed down the stairs... some brought chairs to sit awhile - took a few shots and left. 10 mins tops

I think the key to finding this place is that after you pass the Fabbri Memorial you look for a little paved parking area on the right but it's SMALL, only fits a couple of cars and chances are no one else will be there. Drive slow and look carefully. The stairs are (of course) on the left side, the... More

What a wonderful find! This has got to be the most unusual beach I have ever visited. The beach is not sand but medium sized, rounded rocks. It is a fascinating sound as the waves rock them back and forth. Such a peaceful sound. Definitely one of my favorite memories of our visit to Acadia!

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
