We are situated about 7 km from the village of Advocate Harbour, Nova Scotia a fishing community nestled on the north shore of the Bay of Fundy. Our location is unique as we are an automated light beacon that sits prominently on a cliff shelf jutting out into the Bay of Fundy. We experience some of the highest tides in the world and have varying tidal phenomenas called "The Dory Rips"
We are "downshore" from both the town of Parrsboro (53km) to the east and the town of Joggins (62km) to the north. We are about 2 hours from Moncton, New Brunswick and about 3 hours from Halifax, Nova Scotia.
The parking situation, always seem to be such an issue in person and on TripAdvisor. So lets nip this in the bud here and now. The options, always have options.
1. Make arrangements to get picked up with our "capemobile" and have your big bag of luggage carted down.
2. Pack a smaller bag, with the particulars and walk down and enjoy the whole of the experience.
3. Wheel your big bag down, over the rocky road and then complain, on deaf ears, when you arrive.
4. If you have a 4x4 or All-wheel drive and have made arrangements, please drive safely, watch for people and park around the loop, up by the guest house. Side note, the road has a few overgrown branches and on occasion, the rocks get turned so the sharp sides are up. So, again, think deaf ears, when about to complain. Drive at your own risk.
When google mapping just look up either Advocate Harbour or Cape d'Or, they will both get you to where you need to be. Here.
