  • Beautiful sunsets. Views are amazing! Walk along the ocean floor and discover Nature's wonder... Great place for a picnic. Keep coming back... always something new to see.... 💗
  • Great place. Very impressive. Well maintained. Nice staff.
  • Beautifully kept area, new stairs and foot cleaning area are great! Washroom facilities great improvement too!
  • Impressive tide viewing. Rocks are somewhat difficult to descend to base. When tide is out you can explore a very large area. But know when the tide comes in as it can be very dangerous.
  • 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.
