  • The Thunder Hole is on the Park loop trail. There is a parking area across the highway. The Thunder Hole can be observed from a look out point on top, or if you are able you can stake a stairway down ...  more »
  • Thunderhole is a place on the coast where you naturally comes along if you the course follows. It is a crack in the rock coast where the water with great force in pounds. This gives the noise that is compared with the Thunder. Funny, but not spectacular.

  • Best to go when the tide is high and seas rough; then the thundering really goes. But, though pretty, this place is too crowded with bussed-in and drive-in tourists to be really interesting.

  • The best place to enjoy and relax. Didnt want to leave! Loves climbing the rocks and catching pics of the water crashing against the Maine coastline. Simply amazing!
  • Crashing surf creating thunderous noise draws quite the crowd. This oft crowded spot is a great place to get doused after a long hike. The water, most of the time, rushes into a cleft in the rocky shore and gets blown back out with tremendous force.
  • Nice spot but depends a lot upon the waves and tides if you plan on hearing any 'thunder'. Good parking lot , can be crowded.
  • We had a great time, even though it wasn't at the correct time for the loud boom. The ocean path was a great hike for setting multiple great vistas and comfortable incline through the entire trek. We recommend it for anyone with kids because the beach is just around the corner
  • It's interesting , but I wouldn't say it's that incredible. I wouldn't stop of there are too many cars here - it's hard to maneuver with all of the people.
