Frenchmans Bay is a moderately large area along the west side of Mt Desert Island. Hard to rate as a unit, it offers a great opportunity to see this section of Mt Desert from the water. Sail on the four masted schooner, the Margaret Todd, rent kayaks or use other tour boats. Not highly expensive, there are many different tours available including sunset which is a winner. Kayaks or trailer mounted boats can be launched from the Inn side of the Bar Harbor Town pier from a concrete ramp.. Just the pier and small beach themselves are a delight to visit. Surrounded by local fisher boats, the Bar Harbor Inn and a nice park, this is downtown Bar Harbor at its' best. Don't miss this. The shore path begins here, exactly at the end of the pier. A free area and one of the best.
