  • A must see, worth the drive. High tide presents the opportunity to be way too close to thunderous water. Don't slip on the stairs! Would be benign at low tide but would be awesome to walk on the ocean...  more »
  • While the geological features aren’t as impressive as the Hopewell Rocks at Nova Scotia’s Burntcoat Head Park, this small seaside park still offers a great opportunity to explore the “ocean floor” of ...  more »
  • We went there at the peak of the low tide (check the tides for the day of your visit), so the water was away. The place was not that easy to find. We came from Wolfville and the sign for the Park is r...  more »
  • Amazing place to go and see high tide or walk the ocean floor during low tide! The park is beautiful and the lighthouse has many interesting items, photos and paintings!
  • This is a beautiful spot to spend an afternoon. You can explore the lighthouse on site, then stroll around the grounds. The deep red mud at the shore and the red stained water are gorgeous.
  • Nice stop of you need a break from driving. The lighthouse is a replica after the Canadian federal government violently burned down the original. The locals seem to still resent this federally-induced arson. You can climb to the very top of the lighthouse if you like. The grounds are pretty, nice for a walk. "Flower pot" island and red sandstone beaches were interesting and unique views. If you stay long, you will see the amazing Fundy tide: 50ft vertical tidal action. The visitor center has a video and info on the total action. Public restroom and gift shop with snacks in the visitor center.
  • Amazing gem. Being able to walk on the ocean floor is just a great experience. Friendly staff. Wonderful views.
  • Just an amazing place. Biggest tide height differences in the world! Wander the really flat beach at low tide, say hi to all of the crabs, and try not to get caught on an island as the tide comes in!
