Things To Do

Where ever you go in New Brunswick, you will find friendly people and natural scenery unlike any place else. The power of the tides is evident everywhere along the coast and provides a sharp contrast to the quiet marshes and rural villages.

No matter where you go, there is a picture around every turn! The most frequent remark from our guests is that they wish they had planned to stay longer. Below, we have offered a few possibilities for memorable day trips while you are with us.

 

Fundy National Park

This beautiful natural resource is 10 minutes from the Bayview and features tidal pools and hiking trails to explore, swimming at the salt-water pool or at Bennett Lake and a host of guided interpretive programs. Plan to enjoy the evening entertainment at the outdoor amphitheater or take in an evening campfire hosted by the Park. The park offers a beautiful 9-hole golf course for those who love a challenge and a new interactive adventure playground for the younger crowd.

 

Fundy Studio Tour

Follow the signs or ask for a map to enjoy a lazy day on quiet roads as you search out our local artisans. Artisans are open by chance or by appointment and most will take the time to explain to you their unique art.

 

The Village of Alma

From the Bayview you can stroll into the village and investigate Alma’s unique shops and restaurants. The village has a rich history, which most residents are eager to share with you. Seafood chowder is a specialty in this area and any one of Alma’s restaurants will serve up their special recipe. Spend some time on the docks and watch the lobster boats unload their catch, or purchase some of the bakery’s famous sticky buns and take them down to the beach to watch the tides. The highest tides in the world create an ever-changing seascape.

 

Waterside and Cape Enrage

A drive along Route 915 will take you to Waterside Beach. At low tide you will find an expanse of white sand framed by red rock bluffs and blue sky. Don’t miss the Waterside Winery which features great local fruit wines.

Whether you are a hard-core adventurer or simply enjoying the sights, you will want to stop at Cape Enrage. This historically significant site boasts excellent views as well as a modern day adventure program. The zip line and rappelling adventures usually require a reservation.

 

 

Hopewell Rocks Park

The world famous “Flowerpots” are 30 minutes away. Plan to visit at low tide so you can explore the ocean floor. There is a playground, restaurant, gift shop and interpretive trails in the park above the beach.

 

Kayaking

Kayaking adventures for all levels are hosted by Fresh Air Adventures and leave from the Bridge in Alma. Whether you want a 3 hour tour or a 3 day trek, this is an adventure not to be missed.     Baymount Adventures also offers a fascinating kayak experience at Hopewell Rocks, kayaking  the rocks at high tide.

 

Horseback Riding

Affordable programs for all levels are available nearby. Ask at the office for a brochure or stop in at the Broadleaf Ranch in Riverside Albert.

 

Geocaching

The Fundy Coast is well known for its excellent caches and Fundy National Park offers an annual geocaching event each May.   This is a great hobby for families and the Fundy Guild is always helpful in getting new enthusiasts started.

 

City Life

Historically significant St. John is about 1 ½ hours away. Don’t miss Reversing Falls—you might see the otters playing in the Bay! Moncton is about 1 hour away and offers the mystery of Magnetic Hill, shopping for everyone and a host of other attractions.

 

Confederation Bridge

Topping the Bridge on a clear day to see the red beaches and pastoral views of Prince Edward Island spread out before you is a site to be remembered. The bridge is approximately 2 hours away and offers an easy day trip to Summerside or Charlottetown.
