Burntcoat Head

It is surprising but most visitors to the Bay of Fundy region don't actually visit the location with the highest tidal range.
Burntcoat Head, NS has this distinction.

Not only does this location have the highest regular tide, but it also holds the record for the highest single tidal range (nearly 71 ft) during the 1869 Saxby Gale. There is a small interpretive park, some rock formations that mimic the larger ones at Hopewell Cape, and a lighthouse built on top of a house.

Do take the time to include Burntcoat Head in your vacation plans.
