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. If you are heading that way, be sure to stop at the other beaches along the drive. We will be highlighting them in future blog posts, but you can see pics beliw from my Instagram feed!
Gardner Creek Beach is not supervised, is dog friendly, and does not have any buildings or washrooms. It is a fun place to explore, have a picnic, enjoy the crashing waves, throw rocks in the brook and soak up the sun! (while you try not to blow away 😉 )
Gardner Creek Beach features a pebbled/sandy section and a long rocky beach. We visited at low tide, but the water comes in and covers all these rocks at high tide
Pictured below is Gardner Creek, which flows onto the beach and out into the bay of Fundy. The bridge is the main road that runs through this area and you can park your vehicle just to the right of it (from this picture's perspective).
There are some impressive tree topped cliffs and miles of rocky beach to explore.
We went on this adventure in May 2018 to visit Gardner Creek Beach, our third beach stop on this route. As you can tell, it was windy, but we enjoyed every minute.
Other beaches along the same road, only a few minutes apart...
