“An Attraction with No Admission Price”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

Caves formed by the force of the incoming tides. Hard to get to except at low tide but worth a look. Seaweed covers the rocks and makes it very slippery. Traffic has worn away the seaweed in a sort of trail across the rocks. The hardest cave to get to was the most spectacular. Large with a sandy bottom. We noticed a rope tied to some shrubs that must be used to escape the incoming tides!

Reviewed 21 July 2012

Viewed the caves at low tide. Had a chance to walk inside and tour the entire beach area. Really impressive!

“DO NOT MISS the St. Martins Sea Caves!”
Reviewed 18 July 2012

These natural wonders are the jewels of St. Martins. Near low tide, walk down and climb the rocks in these giant caves. We were amazed at the depth of several of them. Unlike Hopewell Rocks, there is no entrance fee and you must guide yourself. However, you will open your eyes in wonderment and amazement. Go back and see them half-hidden at high tide or walk on the cliffs above them and look down at the last one to understand how much the water submerges them. I saw a LOT of rock formations while in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and these ranked at the top of that list! Eat great seafood chowder (I ate it at 4 locations, and I liked this the best!) while enjoying the view of the sea caves from across the beach.

“Walk on the Ocean Floor at Low Tide!!!”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

What a great place for a walk! For rock enthusiasts, this is the place to be - towering cliffs, rock strewn beach...Note: Your feet will get wet while walking towards the cliffs, so bring an extra pair of socks and/or shoes with you if having wet feet is a problem for you. The cliffs are amazing. Next time I go back would be for a longer period so I could see what it looks like when the tide is IN...but to walk around, you need to be there when the tide is OUT.

“New Brunswick's Gem.”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

We visit St Martins several times each summer and never tire of the beauty that surrounds this little community. There is always so much activity going on such as music, craft shows and car shows. Also visiting the Fundy trail is a must when going to St Martins. Seeing the rugged beauty of the coastline and enjoying the trip back in time as you visit the interperative centre and see the way of life for many hard working woodsmen in the lumber industry. You should definitely put St Martins at the top of your list of things to do when visiting New Brunswick.
