3266 Mispec Road
Saint John, NB
My most popular post is The Cuts Quarry; A Swimming Hole Secret. In spite of all my hiking, camping, historic site seeking and the art finds that I write about, in the heat of the summer people just want to be where they can cool off. I understand completely so here is another great New Brunswick beach on the Bay of Fundy.
Mispec is a beautiful long sandy beach Just 15 minutes from downtown Saint John, New Brunswick on the Red Head Road. ( Map below) There are well maintained stairs with good hand rails for people with mobility issues, however, they are a bit steep. You can still enjoy the sea breeze from the above grassy area if you don’t wish to tackle the stairs, just bring a blanket or chair. There is also a playground area to keep the kids entertained.
There is ample parking, clean washrooms and changing trailers, and the beach is open dawn-to-dusk daily, however there is no lifeguard on site. In Maritime Mac style, there are also walking trails and the beach has a history of being a long time military recreation area. Not far is the Williams Trail and Cape Spencer Lighthouse- more to follow on that post.
Please Join in for a great summer filled of fun with Maritimemac
