RIDE TO THE BEACH
On busy days, the Sand Beach parking lot fills to capacity, and parked cars sometimes stretch for more than a mile on the Park Loop Road. You will be happier on the bus. Sand Beach is served by Bus 3, Sand Beach, which begins at the Bar Harbor Village Green, and by Bus 4, Loop Road, which begins at the Hulls Cove Visitor Center.
The National Park beach at Echo Lake is located on the route of Bus 7, the Southwest Harbor bus. THE SOUTHWEST HARBOR ROUTE (Bus 7) WILL NOT OPERATE IN 2021.
