  • I read it was best to go at low tide and I can see why... we were a couple of hours after the lowest tide and the water was splashing up under the arches. Still amazing though. Glad we went a little p...  more »

  • 10min stop. Easy access from the highway. Great stop to break up the long coastal drive. You could do it in
  • Amazing view only 2 minutes off the highway. Well worth the stop.
  • Nice scenery, not much other than the arches but worth the stop.
  • Great place to stop and break up the drive, easily accessed from the highway. It has some beautiful rock formations and interesting place to climb around. For an amazing view stop in the middle of winter, the way the ice can build up is amazing.
  • If you like geology or just like cool looking rocks, this quick stop is a must. 1 minute off the Trans Canada Highway, the limestone formations are really neat. Adventurers could climb on top if you have some good footwear and adrenaline. If you prefer to stay grounded the pebbles on the shore under the arches are incredibly beautiful. I could have beach combed all day there. Didn't get 5 stars because although it is free to go in, the washrooms are just drop toilet style outhouses that were in desperate need of attention.
