Tremont is located on the "quiet side" of Mount Desert Island, or the southwestern portion, which is opposite the busiest section of the island that includes well-known Bar Harbor. Tremont and West Tremont are both small, quiet communities, with the villages of Bass Harbor, Bernard, Gotts Island and Seal Cove also included in the township of Tremont. The population of the whole area is about 1,500. Mount Desert Island is home to Acadia National Park, one of the oldest and most scenic national parks in the country. The whole island is a photographer's dream with its' winding roads, lighthouses, craggy cliffs and pebblestone beaches and spectacular coastline. Activities in and near Tremont include boating and fishing, island cruises, sloop charters, sea kayaking, whale watching, hiking and biking. Tremont and the other island communities have antique shops and quaint gift shops galore, and plenty of dining on fresh crabs and lobster - right from the boat. Winter is one of the most beautiful seasons on Mount Desert Island and offers cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, ice skating and carriage rides along groomed trails. If enjoying the indoors is more your style, try relaxing beside a roaring fire with a good book, or visit the Mount Desert Island Oceanarium, The Gilley Museum and the Seal Cove Auto Museum.
