Bar Harbor is a town on Mount Desert Island along Maine’s Frenchman Bay. It serves as a gateway to the mountains and cliffs of neighboring Acadia National Park. Towering over the park, Cadillac Mountain has trails and views of the town, the bay and the Cranberry Islands. Sand Beach is ringed by mountains.
From the town pier, the Shore Path winds along the bay overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the Porcupine Islands. The western side of the island offers a respite from the busier eastern side, but no less beauty, with hiking trails within Acadia, to small coves dotted with lobster boats.
Hiking, biking, bird watching, kayaking, boating, sailing, whale watching, sightseeing, listening to concerts, exploring art galleries, antiquing, exploring islands and lighthouses by foot, car, and boat are all area activities that guarantee guests will leave filled with the wonder of Mount Desert Island, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
