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.

  • This is a cobbled beach. We enjoyed climbing and taking in the views during low tide. Not very busy at all. Easy parking and nice view. You must take steps down to the beach.

  • We stopped by twice on two different days. A small pull off (maybe 5 cars) on the right side of the road.. A small staircase on the left. A nice beach to relax and enjoy the ocean.

  • Great little stone beach, wear shoes as the rocks are hard. It's a short staircase down to the beach and there is no parking lot so park on the road but the beach itself is worth it.
  • Beautiful quiet gem along the park loop road in Acadia National Park. A total nature playground for myself and my son. Please honor Leave No Trace Ethics and please do not remove rocks from the beach. Peaceful, beautiful, and great place to let imagination roam wild. Highly recommend and we definitely will return again. Check out the video on this location on our channel on YouTube.
  • We just loved this TRULY hidden beach. In high season with crowds everywhere, we had this beach to ourselves for much of our two hours there. It's all smooth rock. We brought chairs. Listening to the waves was just perfect.
  • Less popular stop on the park loop road but a must stop to experience the sounds of the cobbles washing in the waves
  • Fantastic, come here and listen to the waves polish the cobbles, climb the cliffs and watch the birds. Enjoy the lack of crowds and watch the fog burn off in the mid day sun while lobstermen haul in traps. This was our favorite place in the park and it's a hidden gem. We will return only wish we had more time here. It's a short walk from the road down wood stairs to the beach so it's easy access and a must see.
