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

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
