Sand Beach

Popular among locals, tourists, and honeymooners, the cool (some would say cold) waters of the beach offer a cooling sensation from your travels. During summer, the site offers the perfect romantic getaway for lovers as they get the opportunity to venture into the water and fill themselves with exhilaration.

The scenic mountain is perched upon Mount Desert Island in Maine’s most famous park, Acadia National Park. The mountain, standing at 470m, is the tallest on the United States eastern seaboard. Couples can enjoy hiking trails and sceneries, and they often get a glimpse of the distant Canadian Nova Scotia in clear weather.

When hiking along the trail paths to the summit, some spots offer couples a romantic view of the ocean and Porcupine Island. Plus, there are excellent places to spread a blanket for a picnic lunch. The mountain’s rock formations of granite slabs rising from the ground make amazing backdrops for your honeymoon selfies.
