Otter Cliff, Acadia National Park, Maine

Rising 110 feet above the sea, the magnificent Otter Cliff towers above the southwestern shore of Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island, making it one of the highest Atlantic coastal headlands north of Rio de Janeiro. The rugged shoreline is built to withstand the powerful crashing waves and blowing winds bringing fog onto the shore. This amazing Acadia landmark is best viewed under late afternoon and evening light from the rocks just past Thunder Hole; however it is frequently obscured by fog.

"Otter Point"

 

Otter Cliff is located only 0.7 miles from the famous Thunder Hole just off Park Loop Road, where one may find beautiful flowers and other fruits of nature. Otter Cove is located just on the other (southeastern) side of the cliff. Fishing boats may often be seen nearby.
