How do I get to Bar Island?

From the Villager office, turn left, heading north on Main Street into downtown Bar Harbor. Continue through downtown until you hit West Street on the waterfront. Turn left again and continue walking until you come to Bridge Street. Turn right at Bridge Street and walk the 500 yards down to the beach. Cross the land bridge over to Bar Island which is only accessible during low tide. The walk should take about 15 minutes from the Villager Motel. Please make sure to check tide charts or speak with the front desk before heading out.
