History of Kejimkujik Seaside
Fishing and farming, Little Hope Lighthouse.
Only 93 kilometres from Kejimkujik's inland region, Kejimkujik Seaside is a captivating natural mosaic. Coastal barrens—essentially dwarf Acadian forests—paint a tapestry of maple, spruce and fir atop Canada holly, huckleberry and sheep laurel. Mossy bogs are speckled with white-fringed orchids and sweet gale; lonely islands of balsam fir and white spruce sit among the dark water.
Hike Harbour Rocks Trail to the singing quartzite sands of St. Catherines River Beach—where uniform grains squeak with every footstep and the rare piping plover arrives each summer. Eiders and cormorants flock offshore, but the basking harbour and grey seals command your attention above all.
Then, wander Port Joli Head Trail, past woodland hiding white-tailed deer, to a shoreline where waves crash in cacophony against granite cobblestones. Here, power and beauty collide in a magical seascape.
