Pebble Beach is a such a beautiful spot, fun for the kids, wonderful to photograph and at low tide, lots of space to hike and explore. Pebble Beach is part of the Cape Enrage Nature Preserve just north of Cape Enrage, on the Bay of Fundy in Albert County.
Did you know we have a beach, right here in New Brunswick, that has black sand? Black Beach is located minutes outside of Saint John, in Lorneville.
When travelling from Saint John to St Martin's on Route 111, why not venture along the coast via Route 825 and visit a few beaches along the way? McLeod's Beach is the first of 3 beaches you will come across.
There is no parking, so we pulled off along the side of the road, there are a few spots with a little shoulder. When the tide is out,
As you can tell, based on our previous beach adventures, we have been visiting some beaches on some windy and cooler days. To be fair, often it is much warmer and even sunny inland, but when you head towards the Fundy Coast, you never know what's in store. When heading out on any road trip, and especially a beach trip, always dress in layers and pack a sweatshirt!
We are enjoying our summer and setting out each week, or so to #discoverNBbeaches to share with you. We hope you are enjoying this series, and would love any suggestions on beaches to visit!
A recent outing, on a cool and breezy Spring day, led us to explore Gardner Creek Beach on route 825, NB. It is located along the Fundy coast between Saint John and St. Martin's, about 1.5 hours drive from Moncton, 30 minutes from Saint John, and about 15 minutes from St. Martin's.
In 2017, we ( the boys and I) spent our summer in Quispamsis, caring for my mom after her stroke. Exploring beaches was one of the things we did to get away from the hospital and get the boys outside. We went to the Irving Nature Park a few times over the summer, and here are some of our photos and the details on the park.
Discover NB Beaches - Herring Cove Beach
Herring Cove Beach is another Fundy National Park beach that we visit yearly. Over the years it has remained a popular beach with access from two trails.
One of my favourite spots in Fundy National Park is Point Wolf Beach.
Just before crossing the Point Wolf covered bridge, be sure to stop at the Red Chairs and enjoy the view.
FUN FACT: There are about 60 covered bridges in New Brunswick. This one was built in 1992 and is 29m long.
Discover NB Beaches - Tuft's Point & Long BeachThe Fundy Trail Pathway extended their car route further along the Fundy coastline to Tuft's Point (an now, 2018, beyond to Walten Glen Gorge). You enter the park after passing through St. Martin's NB, and you can read more about the park itself, here in our day tripping feature. The Fundy Trail Parkway is a park that has an entry fee (See rates here)
Over the past few summers, my boys and I have spent many hours on the road, visiting and exploring our beautiful New Brunswick coastline. As I thought about a theme for a New Brunswick Christmas Tree, my very first thought was to create a tree that represents all those fun day trips and adventures we have spent as a family. Family is our focus this time of year, so we decided to create some ornaments that cherish those tidbits of time spent Discovering NB Beaches. There is so much more to explore in NB, and I look forward to adding more hand made ornaments to this tree each year.
