WE had to hunt a bit to find this trail but it was well worth it,this is a short trail but travels over various ecosystems from forest with babbling brook to ending on an amazing little rock beach. We thoroughly enjoyed this trail.

I found out about Hunters Beach because we had our dog with us and wanted to let him enjoy a beach while at Acadia and the main(HA) 2 beaches didn't allow dogs. I think we drove around the entire park twice looking for the beach because you can miss it that quick. There's no sand, all cobblestones. Beautiful views and... More

This beach is hard to spot from the road, but it is so worth finding. The sound of the waves rolling over the rocks is amazing. The rocks are beautiful. My kids enjoy smashing the rocks on big rocks and looking inside them. I have also walked the trails along the edge of the beach, and the views are great.

We were told about this from a regular visitor to the park. You have to look closely for it, because its not easy to find. Not your standard beach, no sand, just smooth granite. Very peaceful and serene.

We skipped right past the very busy Sandy beach in Acadia NP and found this gem instead. You walk down a staircase to a beautiful rocky beach. Its not the rocks you would think thou. This entire beach is made up of cobblestones and when the waves roll up and off the rocks it makes the coolest sounds. This is... More

This is a small beach on park loop road that is not very busy and has very clear water. It is worth a stop, and if Sand Beach was really crazy and you wanted a quieter beach fix, this spot would do the trick!

Love this beach! It's always so quiet since it's fairly low key and no big signs for it. The kids loved all the rocks which are so smooth and polished (naturally). There's also a nice little waterfall as you head down to the beach itself.

We love to sit here on this rocky beach and just listen to the waves roll the pebbles around. The rocks are medium sized (too small to make a good seat, too large to be comfortable), so you might want to bring something to sit on or be prepared to walk over to the larger rocks.

Seniors, if you want a bit of adventure, Hike up Day Mountain from the south, then cross over Route 3 and take the Hunters Cliff Trail around to Hunters Beach. It is a most interesting trail, but very poorly marked! Hunt (no pun intended) for cairns (small piles of rock indicating the direction of the trail). You'll weave all over... More

I hesitate to review this becaue I prefer to have this secluded beach to myself when I visit! But it's truly lovely. It is completely rocks so don't think you're going to bring a blanket and lay in the sand. But just sit on the rocks and enjoy the sound of the surf coming in and then washing out over... More
