About St. Martins
If you’ve never been to the Village of St. Martins in southern New Brunswick, it really is a must-see. This quaint and charming coastal fishing town has become one of the hot spots for tourists travelling through the east coast.
St. Martins is nested on the Bay of Fundy in Saint John County and is known for being the third-largest shipbuilding town in the Maritime Provinces even though today tourism is the leading industry in the village.
The Bay of Fundy is known for having the highest tides in the world which rise and fall every 6 hours and 13 minutes, creating new times for the tides every day. Checking the Tidal Chart when planning your excursions is definitely recommended.
The most popular of these attractions is the St. Martins Sea Caves where tourists and local residents enjoy exploring caves and the sea floor whenever the tide goes out.
Other attractions are the various beaches, including the gorgeous Duck Pond Beach located just outside of the town, Tidal Harbour, Fundy Trail Parkway, 2 Covered Bridges, and the Quaco Head Lighthouse.
As a fishing town, St. Martins of course always has fresh-caught seafood available to buy and bring back for you to cook yourself, or for you to order at any of the large selection of high-quality restaurants in the village.
