Hopewell Rocks

Hopewell Rocks Review

These famous "giant flowerpots" have been carved by the Bay of Fundy tides. They're topped with vegetation and form tiny islands at high tide, while low tide reveals the entire columns and you can descend to the exposed seabed for closer study. There are also trails, an interactive visitor center, a café-restaurant, a gift shop, and a children's play area. Guided tours are available. It's about a 15-minute walk from the visitor center to the rocks, but there's also a shuttle service (C$2 each way). The tide comes in very quickly, so check tide tables, keep an eye on your watch, and exit the beach with time to spare.
