Quaco Head Lighthouse

Every lighthouse you see has a special attraction all its own and the Quaco Head Lighthouse is no exception. It stands on a scenic point with an excellent view of St. Martins' beach and the Fundy Trail coastline. This 1855 tower was replaced in 1966 and altered a decade later with a concrete structure. It's the perfect spot for a picnic and birdwatching. The Quaco Museum has several lighthouse artifacts, including the Fresnel lens from the old structure. Driving directions: Route 111 to St. Martins, West Quaco Road, turn left on Lighthouse Road.
