3 Day Itinerary

Search the seashore for magical things, like wish rocks, walk the ocean floor and listen to the pop of seaweed crackle beneath your feet as you search for Periwinkles. Explore the sea caves, wander off to deserted beaches where no one can be seen for miles, all this before lunchtime.

Quick Facts

Day 1

  • Join us for a complimentary Breakfast in the beautiful Sun porch to start your day off right.

  • Step outside for a short walk down to the St. Martins Beach. Depending on the tides, you can walk to the Salt Marsh, enjoy the Sand Flats,  and even Echo Cave.

  • Take a trip to the Harbour and explore the many shops, our twin covered bridges and enjoy the jaw dropping views of the red rock cliffs along the Irish River.

  • Head to the Sea Caves at low tide, and walk the beach and through the caves, while taking in the power that is the Bay of Fundy.

  • If you're feeling adventurous, take the Sea Cave Cliff Walk to get another perspective of not only the bay, but also the caves themselves. Theres even an old sea captain cemetery, but keep alert, some say the ghosts of the fisherman's widows still stand watch on the cliffs.

Day 2

  • Join us for a complimentary Breakfast in the beautiful Sun porch to start your day off right.

  • Get ready to explore the Fundy trail parkway! 

  • Parking Lot 1 where you can see and enjoy Fox Rock and Fownes Head lookouts.

  • Parking Lot 2, is the Sea Captains Burial Ground and lookout for Melvins Beach. Ask your personal concierge for the best selfie spot to capture the entire coastline. If you'd like to hike up a waterfall, turn left on Melvins beach and follow the water to Fullers Falls. If you want an easier route, stop at the signs for Fuller Falls at  parking lot 4.

  • Next make sure to stop at the Interpretation Centre. It is packed full of information and facts , inlcuding a great Movie, about the history of shipbuilidng on Salmon River. If your feeling peckish, swing by the Saw Mills and Cook House for a delicious lunch.

  • Parking Lot 8 is a must see spot, where you can walk the very safe, age old Suspension Bridge. Park your car and tie up your laces, this is marked as an easy hike of .4km and overlooks Salmon river.

  • Salmon River Swimming Hole is perfect for the sure fooded adventurer thats ready to do something extraordinary!

  • Head over to the Walton Glen Gorge hike, marked as easy with a total distance of 2.3km. This hike will take you out to the observation deck to overlook the breathtaking gorge. Make sure to stop for a picture!

Day 3

  • Join us for a complimentary Breakfast in the beautiful Sun porch to start your day off right.

  • Make sure you take time to see the Quaco Head Lighthouse. This iconic spot is not only the source of the beautiful fog horn you hear on our misty days, but is also a navigational beacon. Looking below, you'll see what we call "the race". As the tide turns, you'll witness the unbeliveable strength of the currents rushing through the rocks.

  • Another must see spot, close to Quaco Head Lighthouse, is Browns Beach. You can either drive, or if you're feeling adventurous, you can take the hike that goes from the lighthouse along the cliffs to Browns Beach. This hike is relatively easy, but plan your timing so you aren’t hiking back in the dark. At low tide you'll enjoy the sand flats, and miles of exposed ocean floor and jutting rock formations.

  • If time allows, take a hike out to Flat Rock Beach, its another great spot to visit. This rugged destination is perfect to soak in the coastal air and just take in the beautiful ocean coast.
