My Favorite Place in Acadia

Beautiful beach. There's the obvious, cobble beach in the front, but the best place to go is if you walk just about one minute on a little trail and get to the big rocks. Here you will be stepping over about 4,000,000 years of geological time. It's fun to climb on all the rocks, and there are plenty of tidal... More

First off Little Hunter's is a little hard to find. Drive around Otter Cove on the Park Loop Road, past the scenic pullouts on the left. Now the road goes inland a bit. You must look for a couple of parking spaces on your right after about 1/2 mile. It is not a parking lot. Just a pull-off. Now, there... More

We found this in a travel book about Acadia. It was lovely! Few people were there, and it has geologic history behind it as well - read up about the "plum pudding rocks". The sound made by the pebbles on the beach is absolutely beautiful. This is worth finding - a hidden gem in the park.

This is a must stop! The cobblestones that are on the ground are amazing. It's a peaceful, quiet area to explore. Make sure to wear sturdy shoes to walk on the cobblestones. There is a nice staircase that you take down toward the waterfront. This is not wheelchair accessible.

A family friendly trail, the beach was fun to explore. Take your bug spray on this one. Would be fun for a family and dogs would have fun on this one.

We only found this because we saw some people coming up the rock stairway, and we were so glad that we did. It's such a nice spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful view.

This is a beautiful spot in Acadia National Park. It is not well marked, and is difficult to find, so make sure you find it on a map a look for the spot closely if you want to walk down to the beach. The beach itself is a gorgeous rocky beach; we were there near sunset if it was peaceful... More

Stopped here again yesterday while in the park and still amazes me after all these years. Such a beautiful spot that Mother Natured created. I don't know how anyone could make a negative review of this. Not well marked but seek and you shall find. You have to see this for yourself, you won't be disappointed.

The Park Loop Road crosses a beautiful causeway at the head of Otter Cove and continues south along the western shore of the cove high above the waves entering the cove. If you look closely, you might glimpse one of the last of the lobster shacks that used to surround the cove. At the entrance to the cove there are... More
