“Very scenic from every angle”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

From wherever you look at - Frenchman Bay is just scenic. It's turquoise blue water, hilly islands popping out of the bay and some beautiful cruise ships and yachts that dot the bay... all make a stunner of a setup.
I personally loved the view from Cadillac mountain summit. On a beautiful day you can spend hours just soaking in the view.

“Calm like an I land lake”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

Beautiful body of water but not exactly what I expected. In my mind I thought all of Maine s coastline would be rocky, rugged, with the surf pounding against it. Frenchman s Bay is calm and reminded me of the lakes in western north carolina. Not at all disappointed just surprised.

“Walk the sand bar to Bar Island.”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Watch the tide schedules because you do not want to get stuck overnight on the Island when the tide comes back in.
