Periwinkles: Live Deliciously

Once Upon a Tide

Long Beach

Just a short drive away!

If you're looking to experience more of the legendary Bay of Fundy tides, look no further than Long beach. At low tide this beach expands far out, exposing two and a half kilometers (one-and-a-half-miles) of shoreline and ocean floor. 

Worlds Highest Tides

The 8th Wonder of the World

Walk the Ocean floor in St. Martins!

The Bay of Fundy’s 12 hour cycle is the fastest and largest tidal range in the world.

Every new hour brings about a 5 ft increase or decrease, making for a rapidly changing landscape that captures the eye of all who gaze upon it.

Ocean Dips

Moore than an art experience

St. Martin’s coast line typically comes with beautifully calm waters perfect for a day at the beach. Don’t let the warm weather fool you, the Bay of Fundy stays at a consistent 12 degrees Celsius year round, so if you’re willing to brave the temperature, it makes for a beautiful spot to take a swim.

With the water staying at 12 degrees Celsius year round, though it may be chilly in Summer time, it does make for a warmer version of the Polar Bear Plunge during Winter!

Hikes and Walks

The Fundy Trail Parkway is part of one of the longest stretches of remaining coastal wilderness areas between Florida and Labrador. Packed full of hiking trails, look out points, beaches and waterfalls, this is a must see destination during your St. Martins adventure! 

Grand Manan

If you’re looking to take a Ferry ride, see some wildlife along the way and enjoy more stunning coastlines, a trip to Grand Manan might just be for you.

Take the Coastal Transport limited’s ferry, usually lasting about 1.5 hours, but don’t let that discourage you. This stretch of ocean is known for its beautiful whales and sea life. Although you may be booking a Scenic whale watching tour once you arrive, never miss the opportunity to catch a glimpse of Finbacks, Humpbacks, Minke and the rare North Atlantic Right Whales and many more. Not only is this a fantastic area to see whales and the like, but many people travel from all over the world to bird watch.

This area is also packed with galleries, museums and many historic locations to feed the mind as well as the senses as you try the local treat Dulse, a fresh delicacy.

The ferry does start its day at 9:30am and the last boat is back at 7:15 so make sure to plan out your fun-filled day to make the ferry ride back to your home away from home!

Hearst Lodge Trail

To Grandmother's house we go!

This hike takes you from the suspension bridge at Salmon River all the way to Hearst Lodge. With breathtaking views, swimming holes and historic relevance this hike is one you don’t want to miss. While it may be listed as an easy, there are some difficult aspects like a 750 ft elevation gain and 6.28 Km loop. So be ready for a few steep sections.

Hearst Lodge, built in 1961 as a bed and breakfast, was a top location for those looking to enjoy their weekend fishing. This beautiful spot even brought in some big names such as Frank Sinatra, Donald Sutherland, and Prime Minister Diefenbaker.

Interpretation Centre


The interpretive centre is located approximately 10 km into the park. Here, daily talks, washroom facilities, snacks, and souvenirs are available. 


The building housing the Interpretive Centre is a re-creation of the bunkhouse which once housed the single men who worked and lived here. In the late 1800s and well into the mid-1950s, Big Salmon River was a flourishing logging, fishing and shipbuilding community.

The Interpretive Centre houses many displays of original artifacts and old photographs from the era when the paternalistic Pejepscot Paper Company provided housing, a schoolhouse, community centre and even electricity for the settlement at Big Salmon River.

Staff members are on hand to answer your questions about the Fundy Trail Heritage Sawmill & Interpretation.


(Prob needs a rewrite) 


Martin Head Look out

Take a look to the east, and you'll see a beautiful view of  Martin Head, a long stretch of  gravel connected to a rocky head at the mouth of the Quiddy River. 


Fun Fact!

What we now know as Martin Head, used to named Mi’kmaq originally, coming from the word ‘Anesaak’ meaning ‘Lone Rock’. 

Salmon River Suspension Bridge

Make the trip out to experience the 84 m (275 ft) suspension footbridge! Stop at parking lot 8 (P8) near the interpretive centre and follow the Suspension Bridge Trail inland along the Big Salmon River.  Although we all love the Slamon River Suspension bridge, it was actually originally a covered bridge until washed out in a Spring freshet.

Walton Glen Gorge

While visiting the Little Salmon River Natural Protected area throught the Fundy Trail, the Walton Glen raised Observation Deck lets you get toe to toe with the Walton Glen Gorge.


Stop at P15  and follow the trail and go past the main building, turning left and continue on into the woods. 

There is a shorcut that brings you via a cable ladder if you head towards the Reception Centre.
