Hopewell Rocks Beach

Also called Flowerpot Rocks because of the shape of its natural pinnacles and arches, Hopewell Rocks is located in a provincial park of the same name in the Bay of Fundy at Hopewell Cape. The other-worldly rock formations can be enjoyed from a two kilometre beach appearing at low tide on what is technically the ocean floor.

The 20 or so wave-formed stacks can be reached by a wheelchair-accessible ramp or a metal staircase of 100 steps, but you’ll have to be quick, since the Bay of Fundy has the world’s largest tidal change and stacks up to 20 metres in height soon become tiny islets.

The more adventurously minded can also take to kayaks to explore the stacks or admire the surrounding pine forest, home to peregrine falcons among other native species.
