Mount Desert Island, ME Guide

About Mount Desert Island

Home to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, Maine’s Mount Desert Island is one of the most beautiful destinations in New England. Sculpted by glaciers millennia ago, the island is left with seaside mountains, long lakes, and Somes Sound. The beaches, ocean-side cliffs, and numerous hiking and cycling trails offer many opportunities to enjoy the unique setting, while Bar Harbor offers a unique selection of shops and dining options, from seafood—the local specialty—to foreign cuisine.
