The bay of Fundy is incredibly interesting with such high tides, the things that are exposed when the water recedes. The St Martins caves are fun to explore. You should time it to be there as the tide is receding. You need to be able-bodied and wear good footwear to be able to jump over the stones and walk into... More

The famous St. Martins sea caves are a favourite of mine! Located in beautiful, historic UNESCO world heritage site, the caves are a beautiful addition to the town, and are indicative of generations of rough Fundy waves crashing into the red rock. Multiple caves have been carved out. Give yourself lots of time to explore, and wear swim shoes if... More

The coach ride to St Martins Sea Caves is quite beautiful during the fall foliage. Unfortunately, we were probably a couple of weeks late for the best color. The coastline is roughed and great. We stopped at the bay for exploring the beach but first came the lunch at the Sea Caves Restaurant. It consisted of delicious roll w/butter, Seafood... More

I had such fun here. Spent a fair amount of time in the caves. Have to go when the tide is out....and watch your times as it comes in very fast....and high....covers the caves completely so I am told, but I didn't see that. The openings are huge....and you can go back for quite a way...It is not like a... More

Managed to visit during low tide and it was worth the short drive from St John. We were able to walk inside the caves and around the shore looking for wishing rocks. Even found a little crab scurrying away. Also had excellent fish and chips at the Caves Restaurant. Wished we could have stayed to see the high tide come... More

We certainly enjoyed our visit to the Sea Caves. We were there at low tide and were able to walk all around the stony beach looking for "wishing stones" . The beach is covered in smooth stones and some of them have a white line going through them - they are called "wishing stones". The caves looked interesting and I... More

The stony beach in front of cafe affords a great view of sea caves - walk out at low tide. Take pictures at high and low tide the contrast is amazing.

This is yet another beautiful place being ruined by the cruise ship industry! What a shame! St. Martin's looks lovely,as you drive in on Hwy 111 from Sussex Corner. There is a quaint tourist info,in a lighthouse. But,when you drive through the covered bridge to the Caves,shocking! The parking lot had 4 huge coaches there and tons of people,clambering over...

We stayed in the area for one night and regretted it. Caves are cool, if you are a kayaker, walk in at low tide and see if you can paddle in at high tide. St. Martins has several inns, small shops, enough restaurants and some very very scenic coastline. If you are looking for a quiet village to recharge the... More

I was amazed a the natural caves from the sea. Walked all around to see the caves while getting exercise. A really neat site to see.
