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.

Here’s where the Atlantic Ocean rises to become the Bay of Fundy, creating a coastline filled with can’t-miss activities for your stay. It’s also where many settlers first arrived in New Brunswick and put their stamp on communities like Saint Andrews and St. Stephen, where street names and historic sites still evoke those days gone by.

This is a haven of fine dining with Rossmount Inn, Treadwell Inn, Kennedy Inn, Dominion Hill, and the world renowned Algonquin Hotel all offering tempting choices as well as fine accommodations. The lovely Kingsbrae Garden offers a unique dining experience surrounded by one of Canada’s top horticultural masterpieces. 



My travels through New Brunswick continue. We had the most sublime meal at the Rossmount Inn at the southern tip of New Brunswick last night. I focussed on local seafood as I love to do when by the sea. We started with clamato Oyster shooters which were fun and gorgeous (swipe across to see). This lobster cocktail was perfection itself. Beetroot, celeriac remoulade and perfectly cooked juicy lobster. My travelling companion had the most sublime ‪butter poached naked lobster with parisienne gnocchi and lobster-brandy reduction (swipe across!). I also had a bright yellowfin tuna with chia seed and black pepper corn crust. All in such a beautiful setting too. The perfect food for this unexpected heatwave. ☀️☀️☀️ Today: I will be meeting and interviewing local chefs (including the chef here in his lovely garden, keep an eye on my stories!), whale watching and travelling a little further into New Brunswick. We are on the move every day covering as much ground as we can. Meeting such lovely people as we go too. #explorecanada #explorenb #newbrunswick #saintandrews #lobster #lobsterclaw #seafood #atlanticcanada

The Southern Shore offers whale watching, shark or deep-water fishing, sea glass hunting, and tidal pool hiking adventures. You can even drive across the ocean floor to experience the incredible history of the Van Horne Estate on Ministers Island. It’s also the only place where you can go island-hopping with four ferry rides and lots of lighthouses along the way - check out Campobello Island, Grand Manan Island, and Deer Island for a one-of-a-kind summer adventure.

The region hosts three provincial parks – The Anchorage on Grand Manan Island, Herring Cove on Campobello Island, and New River Beach – as well as local beaches like Canal Beach, Katy’s Cove, and Oak Bay. You’ll always have room to walk, picnic, or just rest your mind while you dangle your toes in the water. 



Your photos almost take themselves when you visit New Brunswick’s Southern Shore region. Watching the glorious sunsets, you can almost see the world out beyond the ocean while you relax in one of its lovely, quiet nooks. Welcome to Charlotte County
