Places to Visit Details

Moncton, Canada

Bay of Fundy Tidal Flow

Bay of Fundy Tidal Flow

Twice a day the rising tide funnels through the Bay of Fundy to make the highest tides in the world. Water sweeps into the Petitcodiac estuary as a meter-high wave, swelling its flowing into a broad lake and covering nearby mudflats and salt marshes. In Moncton, the muddy riverbed becomes a 7.5-meter deep river within an hour. Tidal Bore Park in the city's downtown is the best place to catch the natural phenomenon, with a clock showing when to expect the next bore.

 

 

Magnetic Hill

Magnetic Hill

Magnetic Hill, northwest of Moncton, is one of Canada's most visited natural and marvellous wonders and attractions. It owes its fascination to the fact that even if a driver can put a car in neutral, he seems like releasing the brake and feeling that the car is being drawn uphill as though by some ghostly hand. In addition, The Magnetic Hill Wharf Village is a tourist area with shops and restaurants designed to look like an old maritime fishing village. The nearby Magnetic Hill Zoo is habitat to more than 500 animals representing about 80 species from around the world.

 


Hopewell Cape

Hopewell Cape

The Bay of Fundy tides flood the marshes around Moncton, but in Hopewell Cape they have carved unusual sea stacks. The Hopewell Rocks, also known as the Flowerpot Rocks, are tide-sculpted pillars. At low tide, you can walk on the ocean floor and look way up at the earthen cliffs. At high tide, the water covers all but the plants growing on top. Also in Hopewell Cape, there's the local-focused Albert County Museum. The heritage buildings and artifacts at the museum call the area's pioneer, shipbuilding, and logging past to mind.

 

 

 

Cape Enrage

Cape Enrage

Cape Enrage is the site of an 1838 lighthouse that still remains in operation as well as offering an outdoor activity center zip-lining, rock-climbing, rappelling and kayaking. For those not seeking an adrenaline-pumping activity, the magnificent and marvellous view of the towering cliffs and light station at Cape Enrage is worth the trip.

 


Parlee Beach Provincial Park

Parlee Beach Provincial Park

Shediac's Parlee Beach Provincial Park is thought to have the finest sandy beach on Canada's Atlantic coast, and in summer, the relatively shallow water here can get as warm as 20°C. The park has campsites as well as picnic areas and changing facilities. Nearby Shediac is an Acadian town that prides itself on being the lobster capital of the world. The town has numerous shops and galleries, as well as lots of restaurants where seafood is the specialty.
