Little Hunters Beach, Acadia National Park

4.6
#14 of 18 in Outdoors in Acadia National Park
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.
