Far north from the usual crowds that visit the typical vacation spots in Maine, lies the Bold Coast. Located just south of Lubec, the easternmost town in the U.S., this is a pristine area with very little development.
To get to this place, you park along a little-used road and hike in about a mile and a half, coming to these spectacular cliffs. From here, you can hike south along the rim of the cliffs to a primitive campsite that lies directly on the coastline. Hiking along the trail you can always keep an eye out for seals and whales (on the left), as well as bear and moose (on the right.)
I don't think I know of a more lovely place on the east coast to spend the day. You might see one other person during the entire day.
