After a very short walk from the car you are treated to a spot that is incredible for viewing sunsets. Depending on the time of year, be prepared for mosquitos at dusk.

Beautiful views, great photo opportunities. We loved shelling here & looking for sea glass. Also saw seals out swimming here. Met other nice folks, often offering to take pictures for each other. Wonderful sunset place. Peaceful & serene.

Beautiful view. Easy to access. The community of Brier Island were nothing but kind and welcoming to my husband and I. You cannot beat the view you will find here. Absolutely breath taking.

Beautiful spot for a picnic or to watch the sunset. It's a bit of a drive on a dirt road but worth it.

What can you say about a light house at the end of the road... you have to see this and the views to truly appreciate what is here.

Located on the western shore of Brier Island on a dirt road pocked with pools of water. Not recommended unless you are driving an SUV. We were lucky enough to witness the sunset over the lighthouse.

My husband and I went in August of this year. We were told by the owner of the B&B we stayed at that this is a great spot to catch some fantastic sunsets on the Bay of Fundy. She was absolutely right!
