Tips for exploring the best of the Bouctouche Dune, New Brunswick

Ok, ok so I know you’re all waiting for more photos + adventures from Grand Manan and more importantly – PUFFINS! I swear, those posts are coming soon, I just have thousands of pics to sort through and life has been crazy busy (in the very best ways.) But because I don’t want the blog to be quiet this week, I thought I’d share some snapshots from a local favorite of mine – the Bouctouche Dune.

Located about 45 minutes from Moncton, the Bouctouche dune offers an AMAZING salt water beach, an interpretive center, a gorgeous boardwalk and the best part – it’s totally FREE.

Walking the beach is one of my favorite reasons to go to the Dune. The water is a bit cooler as you’re swimming in the unsheltered Northumberland Strait, but don’t let that stop you from jumping in on a hot day. With limited swimmable water options this summer, the Dune is a safe, mermaid approved swimming spot.

On the hunt for beach glass? I’ve found some of my best pieces on this beach – including the incredibly rare red sea glass! It’s also home to beautiful pieces of driftwood that make great photo ops, just sayin.
