Head to East Quoddy Lighthouse for views over the Bay of Fundy from atop the 15 m (51 ft) tall lighthouse. Only accessible during low tide, the octagonal tower was built in 1829 and has been home to many lighthouse keepers over the years. It features white walls with a red cross painted across the height and width of the building. Four other buildings, also featuring a red and white theme, accompany the lighthouse. Many locals will tell you that the iconic building is in fact the most photographed lighthouse in the world.
