A Night on the Beach
Sand Beach is the only sandy beach on Mount Desert Island, which makes it really busy during the day. The best time to escape the crowds is during a moonlight night. When the beach will be mostly empty (other than the occasional ranger program). So rather than heading out to the bars in Bar Harbor at night, get a bottle of wine from Hannaford in town and cozy up on Sand Beach, just make sure that you bring a flashlight!
