It is impossible to have a dull hike around St Martins, as there is so much to explore. Quite apart from the beaches and trails, a walk down to the village along West Quaco Road takes you across the salt marsh, which is a Ducks Unlimited conservation area. Turning left from the head of the driveway takes you to the end of Lighthouse Road where there is Quaco Head Lighthouse, a featured New Brunswick lighthouse, although fully functional.

The Fundy Trail is spectacular at any time of year, and what could be a better way to spend the day than to hike along the trail, stopping at the many vantage points to take in breathtaking views of the bay. Looking straight across the opposite side, you can see Gull Cottage nestling under the headland. Take some time to cross the suspension bridge over Salmon River, and if you are starting to get tired and thirsty at this point, then a cup of coffee or a cool drink is not far away, at the Interpretive Centre.
