The caves have been carved by the massive force of the large tidal change . We arrived as tide was rising so we could not go out i and explore the caves and other areas. The small town,St. Martin, bay, covered bridges,port,etc. make this area a must in your visit to the StJohns area.

The sea caves in St. Martin's are a nice tourist spot. If you go make sure you are there when the tide is low, otherwise there is not much to see. The area has several nice places to eat while you are there.

While on a New England/Canada cruise one of our land tours took us to this unique spot. What natuer can do is really amazing to see and this is an amazing thing to see. Years and years of tidal work has formed this not to believed sight. If you do have the choice of taking a tour that includes this... More

Just outside center of picturesque little town of St. Martins. Worth watching the tide go in/out, but you must see the caves at low tide so you can go inside the caves. Fascinating striations of compressed sediment with pebbles which erodes faster and harder sandstone. But here was the real surprise that most people didn't do. During the lowest tide,... More

We enjoy making a trip to St Martins' Sea Caves every summer. It is a short drive from Saint John and is beautiful to visit the little town during High and Low tide. Of course low tide is extra fun because you get to explore the sea caves! The little coastal town is very picturesque with its covered bridges, lighthouses,... More

Went here in late October, and honestly it must have been the perfect time to go as my boy friend and I were the only ones on the beach. The sun was out and there was barely any wind when we were there. Honestly, you're going to have to be cautious though, as I imagine it can get windy because... More

I have visited the Sea Caves and town of St. Martins twice now. The first time the tide was out and we were able to hike to the Sea Caves. They are more like deep holes in the sea wall, about 30 feet in, but still really neat to go and see. The beach is rounded stones, so a little... More

We were here at low tide and it was nice to be able to walk on the rocky beach over to the very large caves. Interesting formations. Another tour bus magnet.

WE drove down to St. Martins a good drive from Hopewell. Finally got there and the caves are amazing. Beach is all smooth as silk rocks and if you dare to cross the water at low tide you can actually go into the caves. Wear shoes you don't mind getting wet tho.
