Surrounded by a coniferous forest, this quaint beach is covered with large cobblestones and accessible via a wooden stairway. You won't be able to swim here due to strong tides and low temperatures of the water, but you can stroll along the coastline until you come across several tidal pools safe to explore.

  • Really quiet spot - nice for a morning walk. Only small, but lovely in its form. Accessed by a series of old wooden stairs. Worth a look, if you have the time to spare in Acadia.  more »
  • This isn’t a beach in the sense that one would swim. There are a ton of rocks and the water is frigid. However the area is really beautiful.  more »

  • Such a pretty little beach with beautiful rocks. Well worth the hike down the stairs.
  • Smooth pebbles abound, water rushed over then is pulled back to the sea making a spiritual sound to remember.
