Acadia National ParkExplore the beach and discover a complex mix of marine life - and former lives - revealed in each handful of sand. As much as 70% of the sand consists of broken shells of mussels, sea urchins, barnacles, and periwinkles - signs of an unusual abundance of calcareous organisms in such a cold climate. Crushed by waves and changing tides, the bits of shells beneath your feet create a kaleidoscope of colors - clues to the rich diversity of life in and around this pocket beach.
