Burntcoat Head

Burncoat Head Banner

Burntcoat Head provides a unique landscape along the Bay of Fundy! At low tide you can walk along the ocean floor as you look for shells, rocks and even fossils. Explore the many water eroded indent caves along the cliffs. A replica lighthouse serves as an interpretative centre.
