Discover NB Beaches – Tuft’s Point & Long Beach
The 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)
We went twice last summer, the first trip was just Clayton and I. We had such an awesome time that only a few weeks later we went back with the whole family, including my mom.
I will let the photos show you the beauty of this beach.
Clayton enjoyed climbing this large pieve of drift wood found on the beach. The terrain is part sand, rocks and pebbles. There is a brook that runs to the beach, and you can explore the various areas of the beach from the parking lot access, and venture along the coast in both directions.
Above is a photo from a visit when it was high tide.
There is a combintion of rocks, sand and gravel on this beach.
Water shoes or Crocs make the perfect footwear for strolling along the low tide streams.
Because of the tides, the beach can appear to be huge or just a small strip along the coastline.
The water is cold, it is the Bay of Fundy, nut perfect for a splash or dipping your toes in.
This beach is dog and family friendly, a must visit on the Fundy Trail Parkway! #GrowingUpNB
