Otter Cliff, Acadia National Park

4.9
#4 of 7 in Nature in Acadia National Park
Take a peaceful coastal stroll and absorb expansive views over the vast ocean at Otter Cliff. From here you’re presented with fabulous photo opportunities, as countless boulders lining the shoreline emerge from beneath the water during low tide. Formerly serving as the United States Navy's radio facility, the natural rock formation rises 6.63 m (21 ft) above the level of the water, making it one of the highest coastal headlands north of Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro.

  • I love to sit and observe natures beauty without lots of people and this place is perfect. There was like no one else there with us and it was just so peaceful! I wish this was out my back door!  more »
  • Worth coming for a look as part of your journey around the loop road. If you don't have a car or easy means of getting there, then perhaps not worth all of that trouble. Nice, though.  more »
