Head Harbour Lighthouse..Campobello Island (part of New Brunswick, is only 12 km away from Maine's coast).
After a good nights sleep we are going on a short hike (at low tide) to Head Harbour Lighthouse..
“Campobello Island is an island located at the entrance to Passamaquoddy Bay, adjacent to the entrance to Cobscook Bay, and within the Bay of Fundy. The island is one of the Fundy Islands and is part of Charlotte County, New Brunswick, Canada.”
Hold on tight to the railing.
“The Head Harbour lightstation is about two and a half miles from the nearest community, Wilson's Beach. The rocky outcropping on which the station is set becomes an island at high tide and is connected with the main body of the island by more of these rocky quasi- islands. A road from Wilson's Beach runs to a spot within walking distance of the lightstation. Beyond that point, the station is accessible by foot at low tide.” READ MORE
“Iconic lighthouse that is only accessible by foot at low tide. Even at high tide the visit here is worth it to see sweeping views of Passamaquoddy Bay with it whales, seals, eagles, and boats. A great place to have a picnic lunch…Bring your Binoculars”
Time to head back.. “Walk on ocean floor to gorgeous lighthouse What a blast! Hiked over black seaweed, ocean rocks, sand and a few foreboding staircase-ladders all the way to the lighthouse. Cost $5 US, and worth every penny to keep the site beautiful.” Ok to donate a little more to help with upkeep… Just Saying…..
Proceed at your own risk. Beach exposed only at low tide. Incoming tide rises five feet per hour, and may leave you stranded for eight hours. Wading or swimming is extremely dangerous due to cold water and swift currents..Danger Danger Danger……..Just use common sense.
