Discovery Beaches

Not every trip to the beach has to be about swimming and sunning – some of us see the beach as an opportunity to get swept away in the sea grass and learn about a new ecosystem. 

Uncover a different side of New Brunswick's coastal landscape where you can stroll along the sand dunes, spot waterfowl and shorebirds in the marshes, beachcomb for driftwood and sea glass, marvel at tidal pools and even search for ancient fossils. 

There’s no question about it – you’ll want to discover all of New Brunswick’s beaches!

Calling Warm Water Babies!

We think the best beaches in Canada are right here in New Brunswick. After all, we have the warmest salt water in the country. 

Kick off your beach vacation at Parlee Beach, one of our most famous salt water destinations. Parlee is a complete beach experience-with lifeguards, swimming, sunning, volley ball and sand sculptures. 

When you’re ready to trade your towel for a seat on a sunny restaurant patio, check out the lively Main Street of the town of Shediac. Make time to stop for a photo-op next to the World’s Largest Lobster!

If you’re ready for salty surf and sun-soaked sand, our miles of unspoiled coast and sandy beaches mean your best beach vacation has arrived. 

You can comb them, camp near them or catch a tan on them. Park your beach chair at one of Canada’s warmest saltwater swimming beaches on the Acadian Coast or close your eyes and listen to the rolling tides on the Fundy Coast.

When people leave New Brunswick, I want them to remember that we are very social, we like to welcome them, we’re funny and we love to talk. It’s a really beautiful place and I’m really proud to be a New Brunswicker.
