Hopewell Cape

The Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick boasts the highest tides on the planet with as much as a 53-foot swing between high and low tides. This natural phenomenon has led to the unique erosion and distinctive sandstone formation of the Hopewell Rocks, said to resemble flower pots springing from the earth. During the low tide, you can walk along a 2km stretch of ocean floor, scour for seashells, and explore hidden coves. The high tide comes twice per day and turns the Hopewell Rocks into small islands waiting to be explored on kayak or simply marveled at from one of many elevated viewpoints.
