At Cape Chignecto Provincial Park, towering 185-meter (600-foot) cliffs rise from the Bay of Fundy while the world’s highest tides lap at their base. Cape Chignecto is a 4,200-hectare natural environment park on a dramatic coastal peninsula. The park features 29 kilometres (18 miles) of pristine coastline, some of Nova Scotia’s most significant geological features, deep valleys, sheltered coves, rare plants, remnant old growth forest, scenic views, and a rich cultural heritage. We offer wilderness camping in secluded coves and ravines, while a spectacular coastal hiking trail leads visitors along high cliffs and deep valleys. Because Cape Chignecto is a wilderness hiking park, there are no drive-up camping sites.

A fair climb for novice hiker through forests with stunning sea views ending at a waterfall and beach hike that must be done at low tide. The red sandstone rocks protruding onto the beach are sculpture . There is a 3 day hike also

Beautiful area for ocean look off or hiking etc.. The entire town of Advocate is very quaint and yet there are various things to see and do as well as places to eat.
