We walk the beach often and let the kids run the beach often. The walk out into the ocean floor is cool if you're not from an ocean area. We found it particularly cool in the winter... when the weather is frozen but not windy, the beach is a great walk with views of HUGE ice hanging...

Absolutely stunning. Research tide timing and plan accordingly. If you go when the tide is out, you can take an amazing, endless walk along the ocean floor down on the beach, looking up at the cliffs. If you dont catch the right time of day for that, their all-season hiking trails are fabulous as well. Several incredible look-out points!

We have been to the park on other visits to Nova Scotia, and looking over the cliffs truly is remarkable. This time, however, we saw them in a completely different way. Rather than driving to the Provincial Park, we took the road going to the little village of Blomidon, and beyond. Just prior to the lower park entrance (which was... More

Staying in Halifax, we wanted to experience the best of The Bay of Fundy. We saw an on-line video of the Blomidon experience, so we wanted to tie it into our trip. We picked the day when the tides were low in the morning. Our first morning stop from Halifax was to picturesque Hall's Harbour, where at low tide we... More

Blomindon Provincial Park closes mid-September thru May 20- a chain blocks the park entry gates. However guests arriving later in the fall still have access to the "pre-park" area which contains picnic tables and benches which overlook the Minas Basin. Best of all, there is a walkway (stairs) down to the ocean floor! We visited when the tide was low... More

A beautiful place to walk on the sea floor at low tides (obviously!). I suggest you start at a lower point and walk northwards.

The Entrance into the park was closed as of Mid-Seprember. You can still access the parking lot at the park entrance. This allows access to two levels for picnicking. Access to trails on the far side of the parking lot near the garbage/recycling containers. Access to the shore through the picnic area, then down two sets of stairs. Also the... More

We parked in the lot in front of the entrance to the park (which was closed on a mid-September weekend). Walked through a small park and took the stairs down to the beach at mid-tide. Wonderful view and the red cliffs were stunning. We then took the trail up the steep cliff. We are in our 60's and in very... More

As someone who grew up in NS i had never been here. Wow I had kissed out all of those years. First off check the tide times. It's best to go at low tide. Make sure the tide is going out and won't be coming in so you can explore down on the beach area. Such a beautiful beach to... More
