Corea is the quintessential fishing village located approximately an hour's drive from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park in Downeast Maine. It sits on the tip of a peninsula and is a lobstering port, home to a fleet of about 40 lobsterboats, where the surrounding docks are usually piled high with traps. Corea is, in fact, home to a well-known manufacturer of lobster boats. The community is small in size, picturesque and quiet. The kind of place that is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the true sense of Downeast Maine away from the usual tourist crowds. Activities in Corea include boating and fishing, hiking, biking, sea kayaking, whale watching, wildlife viewing, dining on fresh lobster and crabs. Golf can be found nearby, and ferry service is available to Nova Scotia. You will find galleries of local artists and craftspeople in the area, but other than that, Corea is virtually untouched by tourism. Attractions in the area include Grandstone Neck and the Winter Harbor Lighthouse, the Fraser Point Day Use Area, Schoodic Head and Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge. The latter contains 2,166 acres of forest, shorefront and fields, with two walking trails known for its birdwatching and wildlife.
