    St Martins Sea Caves
    Nice area. If you go to Hopewell Rocks, this area is a smaller version. We were there at low tide. Spent a hour at the caves then we walked around the area. Some small souvenir shops. You can manage most areas with running shoes but if you wish to explore easier wear boots or waterproof shoes. There is a restroom at the visitor centre that looks like a lighthouse before getting to the caves.

    Interesting caves
    We visited St. Martins sea caves at low tide. Lots of free car parking available. It was quite busy when we visited. You walk out across the shingle to view the caves. Unfortunately they are cordoned off so you cannot go into the caves like you were able to in the past.

    A quick, fun and free stop! Just before the Fundy Trail, so the location is ideal.
    It's not as spectacular as Hopewell Rocks, but it is pretty awesome nonetheless and far less crowded! You don't need to wait until Low Tide, or you can visit an hour or tour after Low Tide, when the crowds are less. We went just after Low Tide and we shared the entire location with less than 20 people. Awesome experience.

Beautiful, also the restaurant next door has delicious soup. It's a relaxing walk and the views are scenic. Wear comfortable shoes. The rocks are slippery.

Nice, easy and free stop! It is very impressive, I wish we were timed with low tide to get closer to the caves!

Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The sea cave trip was disappointing though. We paddled a very short distance and spent just a few moments with each kayak backed into a small cave. Not really worth the money except that having competent sea kayak instructors and appropriate boats was prudent on a windy day.

We went at low tide yesterday and it was incredible. There is no fee to enter or park your car. The roads are windy and mountainous but the destination is well worth the payout.

Some tips:
- Make sure you check the high tide and low tide times before you go or you won’t be able to access the rocks.
- As well, be careful as you need to know when the tide will be coming back in. Even if it says “high tide will be at its peak at 12:01am”, that means the water will have been rushing back hours before that and will be filled at it’s highest by that time. This is why people say go 20-30 mins before low tide as you will be there when the water is receding.
- Talk to locals so you understand how to read the high and low tide charts correctly. Do this before crossing over and exploring.
- Water shoes with grip and insole are a must.
- I would suggest underwater gloves (or dive gloves), as climbing over rocks to get to some sights requires you to position your hand on rocks filled with barnacles, bladderwrack seaweed and periwinkle snails.

Enjoy!

At low tide you can walk out to see the caves and they are very interesting. It may be possible to get to the caves wearing running shoes, but there is a stream that will be difficult to cross without getting wet. Water shoes or boots would be better. Barefoot is an option, but there are lots of rocks.
If the water is low enough you can go around the bend to a second set of caves. Be aware that the tide comes in deceptively fast.

We visited at low tide. Fairly easy to walk with water shoes (a must). Beautiful caves to explore. The views are amazing. Friendly gentleman at a small craft booth gave us good places to visit.

When I went at the end of May (just before the wildfires hit), it was extremely hot and the black flies were out by the millions. You couldn't get out of the car without getting eaten alive. So, I saw the sea caves from the parking lot for a few brief minutes. There were some people walking on the beach - they must have had a ton of bug spray on. From a distance, the caves looked nice and not something you see every day.
