Best Things to See in Acadia National Park
A hidden beach in Acadia National Park
Little Hunter’s Beach is a hidden gem. You have to look for it, or know what to look for to know when to stop to access this area. It’s basically a Goonies adventure, once you find it! It’s one of the best things to see in Acadia National Park, in my opinion!
Here’s your GPS location! Add it to your route, or your map so you know when you’re coming up on it. It comes up quick! There’s a small pull off parking area (super small, think 3 cars) on the right side of the road. The steps down to Little Hunters Beach are on the left.
What to see
You can hike up the cliffs and explore. I did this with my Mom when she was visiting, it was a lot of fun. It’s the perfect place to escape the crowds and take in the cool ocean air. It’s one of the best places in Acadia to sit and listen to the waves crash in. It is a rock covered beach, no sand, so we recommend bringing a chair if you’re planning to stay for a period of time. We found some large rocks to relax on. Can you just imagine yourself laying in the sun on a blanket, listening to the waves crash in, reading a good book? It’s paradise.
