Visit Acadia on Mainland
If you have never visited, or spent a few days at the Schoodic Peninsula and Schoodic Point part of Acadia National Park, you do not know what you are missing. There are numerous places where a person has direct access to the ocean. Since it is a north-south aligned peninsula, it is a great location for photographing sunrises and sunsets. As an added bonus, there are two lighthouse; one on the western side and the other in Prospect Harbor to the Northeast. Another big plus is that the waves are often very good here, particularly at the point. Directly to the North is US Coastal Route One which makes it very easy to get to other locations such as Ellsworth, Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, or Bar Harbor. The Free Island Explorer Shuttle Bus also has a route here connecting Winter Harbor with the Ferry Terminal, spots within the park, Birch Harbor, and Prospect Harbor.
