The Quiet Side of the Island...
While most tourists to the island of Mount Desert head to Bar Harbor on the northeast coast of Maine, Southwest Harbor is one of the two principal towns on the west side of the island. First settled by fishermen, the town retains our maritime heritage- boasting healthy fishing fleets and a myriad of boat yards.
Although less traveled than the east side, the "Quiet Side" of Acadia offers a variety of fun and recreation for visitors. We invite you to browse our webpages, or better yet, visit us and enjoy a classic Maine island vacation!
