Don't miss the beautiful views! The pier is a good spot to see the islands and you can take a sailboat ride on the Margaret Todd from there.

One of the best views of this bay is from the top of Cadillac Mountain at sunrise. On the right morning the colors from the sun change the water in this bay to almost every color!!

Very quiet, not too busy. Great place to get away from the city life. Having coffee in the morning and watching sunrises was great.

Just like all the other bays in the Mound Desert Island area, the views are just spectacular.
