Sand Beach, on the east side of Mt. Desert Island in Maine, is the first stop along the famed 27-mile long Park Loop Rd., and just might be the most memorable visit on your Acadia National Park vacation. Perfectly formed with scenic hills on one side and rocky areas on the other, this special travel destination affords amazing Maine beach views everywhere you look. It's not so much the parts -- the rare expansive Maine sand, chilling clean water, classic Maine rock formations, fresh air, the southern exposure -- but the sum of scenic qualities that brings together an incredible feeling of peace and relaxation. It's truly one of those "you just have to be there" places that will stay in your mind, long after you've left.
