“One of the most beautiful places in the world...”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

There is no doubt that the view at Frenchman's Bay in Bar Harbor is one of the most spectacular in the world. Take a ride on the Margaret Todd Schooner for beautiful water views, or eat at any of the waterside restaurants. Just a great place to be.

The bay is beautiful and can be viewed from land or boat. There are many vista points to see the islands as well.
