It is a little paradise on the island. You can go swimming as well as enjoy a walk on an ocean path. It is difficult to find parking at this place, please plan accordingly.
Large beach on the ocean, and at the beginning of Ocean Drive So many hiking trails and beautiful views!
I love to swim in the ocean but there is only one way to swim in the cold Maine ocean. Pick a day where high tide is late in the afternoon. The tide comes in over rocks that have been baking in sun all day and it warms the water dramatically. Sand Beach waters are very cold, but if you enjoy…
Ocean water and a sandy beach. It is located on the Park Loop Road on the one-way section. May want to take the bus as parking can be difficult with the amount of visitors. Water is cold. Many nearby hiking trails with great views.
One of a kind, enjoy the day at Sand Beach, or stop on your way as you hike the Great Head Trail.
“Rent mountain bikes for the Carriage Trails (dirt roads through the park with no cars allowed) on the Bar Harbor side. Also biking Sargent Drive across Somes Sound has great views. Longer rides around the Park Loop Road or up Cadillac Mountain.”
“Sips is a great little place for a nice affordable meal. You may want to make a reservation.”
“Wonderful restaurant and bar! Specialty is Lobster Risotto! James Gingerbread with Carmel Sauce is wonderful.”
