Sand Beach is nestled between mountains on the east side of Mount Desert Island in Acadia National Park. The beach is largely comprised of unique sand of shell fragments created by the pounding surf.

The caption reads, "Surf at sand beach, Great Head, Bar Harbor, Maine." This postcard is from the Tichnor Brothers printing company Maine vacation series, which was printed from about 1930 - 1945.
