Low tide on the beach at Burntcoat Point Park, Nova Scotia, Canada. This location on the Bay of Fundy boasts the highest tidal range in the world with a 46 to 53 foot difference between sea level at low and high tide.
We visited twice during our trip, going back a second time since the weather was grey and rainy on our first visit. On both occasions, the tide was out and we could walk around the strange, water-sculpted islands in the bay. Supposedly, the tide comes in very quickly leading to the chance of becoming stranded. Signs are posted indicating the latest safe time to be back on shore. On a more positive note, the speed of the tide creates a tidal bore that supports a local surfing industry!
