Wonderful, easy walk out a low tide. Great views, excellent exercise. The birds were entertaining, and the weather was perfect. Even small children are able to make the trek to Bar Island.

We drove around this area, stopping at pull offs to take pictures and enjoy the view. We climbed down the rocks to the beach and enjoyed watching the waves roll in.

Frenchman's Bay is a beauty. Drive around or walk and you'll have to stop a million times to take picture.

Great spot to watch the many sailing and working vessels.One can also see the sunrise and feel the sea mist roll in and lift.

No more need to be said it is just beautiful. The kinda place you want to throw a blanket down and lay there looking out all day.

We love Frenchman Bay -- all of the islands, the sunshine, the fog, the sunrise, the sunset, the boats & ships -- all so beautiful!

A beautiful place to view from shore line or from Mountain top. Especially nice would be to charter a schooner and take a sail. Sunrise or fog all good.

It is very difficult to find beach glass in Bar Harbor. It is not worth looking for anything.

Lobster boats are everywhere on the Mount Desert Island. Every harbor on the island has lobster boats.
