  • I was expecting more, but we were there at a lower tide. It was fun to climb around on the rocks there. Go at high tide if possible. 
  • Thunder hole is perhaps one of the most spectacular spots on the Park Loop Road in Acadia National Park. On a calm day, the best viewing is about 2 hours before high tide. You don't want the hole to b...  more »
  • This was a fun spot to watch the waves crash ashore. You can hear the loud sound every once in a while. Very easy to access with young kids.

  • 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.
