VILLAGE OF ST. MARTINS - TOURISM
Picture By: Rob Roy, Neptune
Nestled on miles of quiet,
unspoiled beaches, the serene fishing village of St.
Martins is the heart of the Bay of Fundy. Centrally
located on the New Brunswick coast, St. Martins provides
a spectacular setting from which to explore the entire
Fundy Coast and much of the province's varied countryside.
The village is also the gateway to the Fundy Trail,
a park with walking and hiking paths along the last
undeveloped stretch of coastline on the eastern seaboard.
Rising around the village are red sea
cliffs and caves where the highest tides in the world
sweep in and out. As the tide recedes, walk the ocean
floor into spectacular sea caves. Colourful fishing
boats sit in the mud at low tide and then float again
as the tide rises in the village harbour. The picturesque
harbour is encircled by two covered bridges, the lighthouse
and Public Gardens.
St. Martins is a magnet for artists and
photographers wishing to capture the unspoiled beauty
of the area. Opportunities for hiking, walking, biking,
birdwatching, rockhounding and beachcombing are all
within steps of excellent dining and a range of accommodation
in campgrounds, cottages, B&Bs and luxurious country
Inns. Visitors to the area can enjoy a range of dining
experiences which include fresh Bay of Fundy seafood.
A growing number of unique shops, galleries and a market
provide excellent shopping opportunities.
Travelers are just beginning to find this
quiet, safe harbour. But for the moment, it is still
on a road less traveled. If you are looking for serene,
spectacular beauty, come and explore our back roads,
trails and beaches. Discover the village of St. Martins
on the shores of the Bay of Fundy.
