We stopped at the Caves Restaurant where there is lots of parking and from there it is a short walk to the St. Martins Sea Caves if the tide is out. They are not deep but are beautiful to see with great colour and interesting striations. The beach is great and the views of the bay are lovely.

So many rocks! Walking around in sandals isn't ideal but better than wearing flip flops. A very beautiful sight and the caves are truly amazing don't let the small river beds stop you from traveling across just be careful of the wet rocks and endless amounts of seaweed.

Less than 1/2 hour drive from Saint John, you can drive to the lively village of St-Martins and find this long beach. The caves are a short walk away, best viewed at low tide.

You have got to visit at high tide and at low tide to appreciate the wonder of the Bay of Fundy. Can't wait to visit again.

The drive through town and the small harbour and covered bridge before you arrive is real East coast. The caves and beach are fun to discover. Bring some flip flops or water shoes as you have to walk through a creek to get to the caves. Bare feet are fine but the rocks are hard on the feet.

We visited here on a shore excursion from a cruise ship that was calling in nearby St. John. The first stop in St. Martins was a spot where there are two covered bridges and a lighthouse. This is very picturesque. There is also a small fishing port in the vicinity, which provides more photo opportunities. The tides in the Bay... More

Interesting relaxing day. Lazy walks to and from beach area with great photo ops and shopping including hats, tee shirts, local art and books as well as the mysterious beaver sticks.

Enjoyed walking out to these caves at low tide and seeing the interesting rock formations. No fee to see them!

We try to get here every time we're in NB. The caves are easily accessible at low tide and give some interesting photo opportunities.

The St. Martin Sea Caves are great to see from a distance or up close. It's very interesting to see the changes as the tide comes in and go out. While the tide is out you can get right inside the caves. Worth seeing if you are in the St. Martin area.
