Bass Harbor

This fishing village at the southwestern side of Mount Desert Island shares its well-protected harbor with another village of Tremont, called Bernard. They sit across from one another, one to the east and the other to the west. The famous Bass Harbor Head Light sits on the southernmost point of the island, marking the entrance to this ruggedly beautiful harbor.
An active community with firehouse, hiking trails, restaurants, and a daily ferry to Swans Island, make this traditional New England village an amazing place to visit.
