Great to see when the tide is out or just hang out on the beach with your feet in the water when its high tide.

We stopped on our way to Moncton and do not regret it one bit!! You HAVE to go at low tide. Wear water shoes as there is a little "stream" to cross (barely ankle deep) and the sea bed is all rocks. It is humbling to stand in a spot that water has eroded to the point where we feel... More

This natural attraction is worth visiting while touring the area. It is very beautiful. It makes for a good subject for photography and a fun place for hiking around the area to get a different perspective on the view. Access to caves and the nature of the view will change and depend on the tides. I'm certainly glad we took... More

Loved being able to walk in the caves at low tide. We seen all kinds of crabs and scallop shells. It was a pretty cool experience. Also got some awesome pictures of the covered bridges even though one is under construction and kind of ruined the picture I wanted.

After timing our visit to Fundy Trail, we arrived at the caves when there was low tide. I wished we had thought to stop at high tide as well, so as to see the contrast, but didn't. We meandered to the caves and were fortunate to see a piece of the ceiling fall before our eyes and not on our... More

A magnificent and unique natural phenomenon. This is a little out of the way, and the towns are very small, but it is well worth it. Around this area, always stop at a gas station when you can, they are few and far between. Went on June 20th 2014, not crowded at all.

The best time to walk to these caves is on a receding tide at 3/4. this gives you plenty of time to walk out to the point and explore. Hint: sneakers, kayak shoes or the like are best so you can rinse them out later. Step inside and take a picture of the blue sky using the cave as a... More

It's an interesting thing to check out, but not the biggest draw for the area. If you go to see the caves at low tide, take shoes you can get wet, as there is a permanent stream you have to either jump (only possible at one spot at lowest tide) or wade through. Also, don't expect to be exploring too... More

Got there at low tide and I must saw the cliffs and caves are very impressive. First part of the beach covered in rocks (and hundreds of periwinkles.) I walked straight out and around the cliff point. Had to cross a shallow stream, but I was fine in hiking boots. The rocks around the point were all covered with wrack/kelp... More
