A secret spot on the busy Park Loop Road

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... read 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

There are some places in this life that you may only visit once. But as soon as you are there you know that something about the place will stay with you forever . This is what Little Hunters beach is for me. The beach is peaceful and meditative by its very nature. It is not 'beachy', ther is no chance... More

The water in Maine is too cold for this southerner but this is nice little beach to stop and visit. Pack a lunch and hang out and watch the lobster boats travel bye.

A small trail that leads from a non-descript parking lot leads through a primordial forest along a babbling brook. The trail winds though fragrant pines and gives way to a beautiful stone beach. If you have never heard the ways crash over a stone beach- this is a must at high tide. Plan 30-45 minutes

this is a small beach, it does have nice views, with your typical rocky coast. Fun walking on the smooth stones by the water.

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
