Trip Planner: USA / Maine / DownEast and Acadia Maine / Mount Desert Island / Acadia National Park / Little Hunters Beach
Nestled in a small cove, Little Hunters Beach makes a good resting spot on a leisurely shoreline walk. 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. A visit to Little Hunters Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Acadia National Park trip app to plot your vacation.
Little Hunters Beach reviews
I loved how that Beach was not well know and no people were here. There is a paved and gravel parking spots on the right side of the road across from the staircase that leads you down to the Beach... more »
Very limited parking so you have to go early to get down to this area! The Rangers warned of this & it took a couple of times coming into the park to finally be able to park & access this area... more »
Small, secluded little cove. The rocky beach is just beautiful and the small waterfall is an added bonus.
Toss a stone among the larger boulders at low tide and watch it bounce! Fascinating!!
