Downeast Maine is a beloved vacation destination for its amazing glacial carved rockbound coastline. Sunrise on Cadillac Mountain is the first place in America to see the sun, offering breathtaking views of Frenchman's Bay. Bar Island in Bar Harbor is one of Maine's marvels, reachable by car at low tide but only by kayak or boat at high tide. Vacationers traveling to Downeast Maine can explore Mt Desert Island, the natural wonders of Acadia National Park, or take a scenic boat ride to see over a dozen lighthouses in a day trip. Furthest "Downeast" Passamaquoddy Bay offers amazing 20 foot plus tides! A visit to Down East Maine offers the adventure of hiking, biking and exploring the coast, with the comforts of staying at a Maine resort, lovely historic inn, RV campgrounds or a more traditional brand hotel.
Bar Harbor is the draws the most visitors to Mount Desert Island, but there are many other towns in the Downeast Region that is just as diverting.
