It was a very unpredictable day where we experienced rain and high winds for 10 minutes and then it would be calm and sunny for the next few minutes. Unfortunately we had the rain and winds at the St. Martins Sea Caves. There were streams...More

This is a great place to see the Bay of Fundy. Be sure to look for wishing rocks (rocks with lines in them.) Tides and weather permitting, you can walk out on the floor of the bay and into the caves.

Don’t make a special trip for St. Martins. If you are in the area of Saint John, and don’t have time, you are not missing anything at St Martins. The sea caves are not impressive like the pictures show, you can’t enter them

This area has very interesting land formations caused by erosion from the sea. They can be seen at low tide. The caves can only be accessed at low tide. There are also lots of beautiful colored rocks that are perfect for jewelry makers.

The caves are reachable by walking across the beach only at low tide.! Can’t emphasize that enough .....if they accessible when you arrive, visit them then ....don’t be lured by the 2 overpriced restaurants nearby. A stop for a “bite to eat first” could end...More

We went here early on morning and had the place to ourselves. We were there at low tide and stayed for at least an hour. Explored the caves and enjoyed the beach even though it was rainy and cool. Well worth the stop. I would...More

We wondered if it would be worth the time when our bus group headed out of Halifax, but ended up appreciating the drive and the stop itself. Much of the drive out to the caves is on scenic, winding highways, with views of coastline, salt...More

The size and scope of these caves are impressive especially when you stand in the mouth of them and gaze upon their depth. Well worth the time to walk out to them but they are reachable only at low tide.

At low tide there is beach access to get to caves but at high tide the shoreline floods with water. Be sure to grab a bowl of seafood chowder at The Caves Restaurant overlooking the shoreline.

Yes, one family even managed to sneak two small dogs onto the patio of the casual restaurant nearby! (We all pretended to not notice... they were very quiet and it was on the beach anyway)

In my previous response, I meant Hopewell Cape. You can also drive the Fundy Trail within minutes of St. Martins which has some nice hiking trails and scenic lookouts.
