“Get Close to the Bay of Fundy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Burncoat Head Park is a great stop to view the Bay of Fundy. There is a lighthouse in the park but you cannot go up into the tower. There are steps to go down to the shore of the Bay of Fundy for a different view of the Bay.

“Small Park with Ample Parking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

This park has plenty of parking and has a square lighthouse building that is well maintained. It was closed for the season when we visited so we had the park to ourselves. There are also great photo spots on the bluff overlooking the Bay of Fundy.

“This is where the highest tides in the worls have been measured”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

It's really a piece of history. At low tide you can walk on the ocean floor and there is a neat little light house to visit.
