Sandy beaches and the soft ocean breeze. New Brunswick is surrounded by ocean coastline and some of the most stunning beaches can be found in the Acadian Peninsula. See map for more details.
Miramichi is well known for its excellent fishing which attracts celebrities from all over the world. But there is another way to get on the river and that’s in a tube! Tubing the Miramichi river has become increasingly popular over the years and is a great way to spend a day with the kids.
