COVID-19 Advisory: Our tourism businesses look forward to safely welcoming New Brunswickers and our Atlantic neighbours, with precautions in place to keep guests protected.

What’s the winning formula for a perfect vacation? How about winding side roads that get you off the beaten path to the very best spots, beaches that let you set up camp and relax all day, more choices for fun than you can pack in, and great meals you’ll never forget. You can get all of that, and a warm welcome, – Chaleur – warm and welcoming are baked into the name of the region.

A sunny stroll at Youghall Beach, Bathurst 


Beresford and Youghall Beaches both offer the waves, the sand, the salty air, and space which are the perfect recipe for fun in the sun: with swimming, beach volleyball, or fishing. Throughout the area are many safe choices for hiking, biking, boating, or just getting some fresh air and a fresh perspective. If you are looking for something different, check out Sentier Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail, a 150-km route from Bathurst to Mount Carleton Provincial Park or Bass Attack Fishing, a guided experience on the Bay of Chaleur.

Walking anywhere in Bathurst will likely bring you to La Promenade Waterfront where you can relax, eat, or get a tasty drink at one of the local taprooms, like Four Rivers Brewing. Alternately, there are plenty of benches to simply take a moment and soak up the scenery.
