In the northeast lee of the island, a deep-water dock, float, and mooring provide ample space for yacht moorage and protection from most winds and prevailing seas. The village of Sunset is a delightful summer colony on the western shore of Deer Isle, a quintessential Maine island that is accessible by automobile over a suspension bridge.
