“Best View of the Maine Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This is the place to see! Don't miss it! Follow the Schoodic Scenic Byway all the way to this point where the road ends. It is part of Acadia National Park.You will be amazed at the view of the rocky coastline with the waves crashing. Be very careful and observe the signs about slippery rocks and waves that can come ashore. You can view everything from the safety of the rocks close to the parking lot. If you bring food, the seagulls will be your friends! Breathtaking views.

“Amazing waves on the rocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Great place to bring a picnic. Dramatic waves, great place for photography. Lots of places to walk on the rocks, very interesting shapes and colors, enjoyable place to watch the drama of the ocean.

“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Many people do not make the trip as it is a distance from Bar Harbor, but it is one of the most beautiful places to see, sitting on the rocks looking across the bay at Cadillac Mountain is unequalled.

“Maine Down East at Its Rugged Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

The photo says it all, but don't get "swept away," as some have, and be careful with small children and animals. The waves come crashing against the rocks--a truly moving experience.

“Spectacular waves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

While on a cruise a few years ago we visited this attraction. The waves were spectacular and sprayed us all the way up on the road. I have trouble walking so had to be content with watching from the road although I really wanted to go own and feel the spray.
Don't miss Acadia National Park if you are visiting that part of Maine. There is much to see and admire.
