Beautiful & quieter than Bar Harbor sites in Park. You can climb down rock outcropping & enjoy the crashing waves. Saw lovely sunset there.

If you are anywhere near Acadia National Park be sure to drive the scenic route around the Schoodic Peninsula which will lead you to Schoodic Point. It is spectacular to watch the waves crash on the rocks. The rocks are mostly flat and smooth so...More
