  • Great views of the ocean and cliffs. It's a magical place where you can explore the scenery. Very colorful place. Wonderful natural area. Go during the down times. Can get crowded.  more »
  • This attraction has disappointed me more often than not. When the tide is perfect and the winds are high, it is an AWESOME FORCE OF NATURE. Otherwise, it's a small chasm on the rocky shore...  more »
  • Beautiful at all times, but try to visit about 1/2 before high tide and especially during a storm. The great thing about all of Mt. desert Island and Acadia Nat'l is the effort made to make these site...  more »

  • 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.
