Fodor's Expert Review Advocate Harbour

Cape Chignecto and Cape d'Or Town/Village

This little fishing community is set on a Bay of Fundy natural harbor that loses all its water at low tide. A delightful coastal walk here follows the top of an Acadian dike that was built by settlers in the 1700s to reclaim farmland from the sea. Nearby is rocky Advocate Beach, noted for its monumental supply of tide-cast driftwood, which stretches for about 5 km (3 miles) east from Cape Chignecto.
