The quaint little New Brunswick fishing village of St. Martins has long been one of our favorite Summertime destinations. If you are a lover of lighthouses, fishing boats, covered bridges, gift shoppes, ice cream parlours, seafood restaurants, walks along the beach, exploring caves, and watching the tide roll in..... then St. Martins should be on your "must visit list". As if there isn't already enough interest to draw tourists and adventurers from around the world to this picturesque little corner of the globe, there have even been news reports of Luna The Great White Shark swimming in the waters near the caves. Yes, it's a fact. The big 2,137-pound female has been lurking around in our Atlantic waters over the past couple of days!
The lighthouse tourist information centre welcomes you into the heart of the St. Martins fishing district - the magnificent harbour. In this area, you will find shoppes and vendors offering an abundance of ocean-inspired goods and an ice cream parlour that beckons tourists who are looking to cool off from the heat of the day.
