Mt. Desert Island, MaineLining the ocean side of Mt. Desert Island, the golden grains of Sand Beach span 290 yards between two rocky headlands. The tranquil bay is one of the few places in Acadia National Park that lends itself to safe swimming. Browse the tide pools at either end of the strand, or scout for seabirds on Old Soaker Island.
