Description & Services
Information A coastal park with a spectacular view of the Five Islands in the Bay of Fundy. 
Home to an historic lighthouse (built 1913-1914). 
Large picnic shelter, ship playground (fun for all ages!), walking path (1 km), beach access. 
Welcome to the seacoast. Close your eyes. Breathe in the salty, fresh air. Feel the wind off the bay blow your cares away. The main attraction here is the Five Islands Lighthouse, a beacon welcoming visitors from near and far. Other facilities are new, yet rustic, and weathered by the sun, seasalt and wind. 
Enjoy the scenery. The panoramic view of the Minas Basin from Five Islands Lighthouse Park includes all five islands as well as the Old Wife (part of Five Islands Provincial Park), The Brothers (Two Islands), Cape Blomidon and Cape Split. This is notably among the best Bay of Fundy scenery. Come, see how the view changes with the tides. 
You won't feel crowded. The park has 8.8 ha (22 acres) of open space, almost 300 m (1000 feet) of ocean front, and access to a long gravel beach.  
Five Islands Lighthouse Park is part of the Cliffs of Fundy UNESCO Global Geopark
Visit the website for dates and hours of operation, as well as details about accessible facilities in the park. 
To inquire about reserving the picnic shelter, please visit the website and complete the park reservation form.  
Caution: The park overlooks an unsupervised beach. When the tide is out, there are mudflats that you can walk on, but use caution with the fast-rising, incoming tide. Do not attempt to walk to the islands; the channels are the first to be filled, and they fill very quickly. You may be cut off on a sandbar and trapped by the tide.  
Hours 8:00 am - 8:00 pm
Dates Serviced May 8 - Oct 11, 2021 
Walkers are welcome year-round. Parking is available year-round. 
Please note the lighthouse is closed to visitors until further notice.
