  • Go at low tide and walk on the ocean's floor, but be prepared to get muddy! Amazing to see how high the tide gets here and how the rocks have been formed by the water.  more »
  • 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 »
  • 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.... 💗
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Beautiful place to view the highest tides in the world. You are able to walk right down onto the ocean floor, which is a messy mix of sand and mud. There are some small caves to climb into and plenty of hermit crabs to be discovered for children in the later summer months. They've recently added a foot wash station and additional restrooms.
