Fundy Shore

Land of Dinosaurs, Gems & Minerals, and the Bay of Fundy with the World’s Highest Tides

Chignecto beach view

With its rocky cliffs, sprawling mud flats and spectacular tides of up to 16.5 metres (54 feet), the FundyShore is like no other place on the planet. In 1985, the biggest fossil find in North America was unearthed near Parrsboro—an already world renowned for its geological treasures. The zeolites and semi-precious minerals found in abundance here have earned the region the nickname “nature’s jewel box.”

Nestled in a sheltered harbour on the Bay of Fundy, Parrsboro was once home to a thriving ship-building industry and today boasts a large wharf with an active lobster and scallop fishery. Further along the shore, travel winding roads through a highland region where solitary lighthouses adorn towering cliffs, and encounter the peace and tranquility of secluded coves and deep ravines
