So amazing! It is definitely worth checking out, during LOW tide. It's beautiful and interesting to see in both low and high tide to compare!

At low tide we walked across the exposed sand bar to get to this small island. It was well worth the short walk. There are trails up the hill and we also walked arount the island by the shore.

We love exploring what the waves may have washed in. It's always fun for us to investigate the high/low tide times to plan our walks out to Bar Island!

When the tide is out, the walk starts as rocky, then becomes a hilly hike but is totally worth it. The view of Bar Harbor is unparalleled!

Nothing real special. We stumbled across this area and decided to take a walk. Temperatures can change with a quick shift from a land to ocean breeze so be prepared even in the summer with a sweatshirt.

Neat little experience to take the land bridge over to Bar Island. Make sure to wear shoes you don't mind getting muddy/sandy. There's a short walk to the top of a hill once you get to Bar Island where you can view Bar Harbor.

We are always facinated by large changes in water levels and this area will not disappoint. Far a better look at tidal pools Bay of Fundy may be a better choice.

Walking on the land bridge during low tide is a fun experience. Lots of shells, and aquatic life to discover.

This is a one of a kind experience walking across where water used to be a few hours ago. Wear boots......but enjoyable.

If you have kids, they will want to go to the land bridge everyday as mine did. The loved exploring all the little puddles for life. Wonderful family time.
