Little Hunters Beach


Little Hunters Beach is one of Acadia National Park’s best-kept secrets. The beach is located in the southeastern section of the park and sits just off Park Loop Road. Visitors can walk down a beautiful wooden staircase to the peddle stone beach. The beach boasts sweeping views of the Atlantic ocean and also stunning views of the rocky coastline of Acadia. It is the perfect spot for photographers, people looking to relax and listen to the waves, and also kids. Many visitors enjoy stacking the smooth stones on the beach to form little towers. It has become a tradition for many Acadia National Park goers. When it comes to swimming, many do not jump in. There is no lifeguard and the water rarely exceeds 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
