Bay of Fundy Drive

Experience the sea at its wildest on New Brunswick’s coast

Take a trip along the Bay of Fundy coast for some great, scenic destinations.

Fundy National Park boasts steep, colorful sandstone cliffs, remains of lava flows, cascading waterfalls and granite intrusions that rise up from the bay.

In Moncton, the Magnetic Hill creates an optical illusion that has confounded visitors since the early 1930s. If you park your car in neutral at the designated spot, you seem to be coasting uphill.

St. Andrews by the Sea is a designated National Historic District on Passamaquoddy Bay. Of the town's 550 buildings, 280 were erected before 1880 and 14 of those have survived from the 1700s.

Lying just off the shore near St. Andrews, 500-acre Ministers Island is a part-time island. You reach it by driving a short distance over the seafloor at low tide. Tour the 50-room summer estate of Canadian Pacific Railway magnate Sir William Van Horne.

The 34-room rustic summer cottage of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is now part of a nature preserve, Roosevelt Campobello International Park, a joint project of the Canadian and U.S. governments.

Discover solitary beaches, hiking trails, birdwatching, whale watching, kayaking, cycling, lighthouses, rugged cliffs, museums, craft and art shops, and scenic fishing villages on Grand Manan Island.
