Must see! Can get quite crowded in the summer with limited parking. So plan to arrive early preferably before 10 am or earlier. Enjoy blue turquoise clear water, soft sandy beach, nice swells, view of surrounding mountains, and a bonus Beehive lagoon with many little fishes for kids to enjoy! Must visit! Starting point for Ocean Path

Little known but nice beach usually frequented by locals
Hunters Beach
Little known but nice beach usually frequented by locals
One of our favorite public beaches in the summers. We like the long stretch of shallow water which is safe for young kids to play. Still cold in the summer but the kids seem not to mind. Not as busy as other beaches. Daughter likes to play on a nice stream that runs across the beach into the ocean. Rumor has it that Martha Stewart has a house in the area

Nice pond with a walking trail( about 2 hour walk) that is a nice easy walk around the pond.Water views throughout the hike. There is an area where you need to walk on rocks - fairly easy except for those who has balance issues. Drop by at Jordan Pond house ( restaurant) after the hike to enjoy their delicious popovers!

A little farther out downeast ( not part of Acadia ) but this is a very unique beach with ocean scrubbed smooth stones that produce a musical sound as the waves crash to and from them. The pictures don’t do justice. If you have time - very worthwhile to visit. A unique experience!

The best time to come is surise( my preference) or sunset. You can see the sunrise at the summit. Sunsets are best seen on the other side. Stop by on the way up and park by the side of the road. Arrive 30 minutes to an hour early as parking is packed. If pressed for time and you only get to visit once- you should go during these times only! Personally sunrises for me are more compelling and you get to have more time after to enjoy the views and walk

Now open for the season! We like their cinnamon rolls baked fresh in the mornings. This is located in Trenton. You can pass this on the main road on the way to Bar Harbor from Ellsworth. Cinnamon rolls not overly sweet and blueberry doughnuts are my daughter’s favorite, love the crunchy sugar coating. Only accepts cash but has inhouse ATM with $2 charge. More personalized service. Better attention to packaging than competitor in Bar Harbor which is a plus if buying for gift. Opens 7 am - 2pm so plan to arrive early before they run out!
