Visiting the Coast
The wind and waves, the sun and shore!
Maine has many beautiful spots along its rocky coastline with a plethora of activities to participate in.
Some of Maine’s Highlights!
• Acadia National Park ranks among the top-10 most visited national parks in the country. You can climb or drive Cadillac Mountain, the highest point on the East Coast, and be the first to see the sun rise in the nation.
• Camden Hills State Park offers an elaborate network of trails that avid hikers, beginners and everyone in-between will relish. Mount Megunticook is the jewel of Camden Hills, with sweeping views of Penobscot Bay and beyond.
• Maine Coast Heritage Trust conserves and stewards Maine’s coastal lands and islands for their renowned scenic beauty, ecological value, outdoor recreational opportunities, and contributions to community well-being.
• Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge contains more than 55 offshore islands and four coastal parcels, totaling more than 8,200 acres. The complex spans more than 250 miles of Maine Coastline and includes five national park wildlife refuges.
• Popham Beach State Park, which boarders the south side of the mouth of the Kennebec River, is truly one of Maine’s rare geologic landforms that features a long stretch of sand beach.
• Rockland Breakwater Light is situated at the end of a 7/8 mile-long breakwater made up of granite cribbing laid down to protect the boats in harbor from rough seas and strong tidal action.
