New Brunswick is home to some majestic beaches, but on a hot summer day with dreams of an endless summer, there’s one beachside town that is a New Brunswick summer must. The town of Shediac is the perfect seaside town to cruise through while playing Jimmy Buffet or the Beach Boys in your car with the windows rolled down. In fact, the Beach Boys have even played here once before because clearly they know a great beach town when they see one.
Planning the ultimate visit to Shediac? Here’s an insider look!
Where to Have Fun in the Sun:
Shediac Paddle Shack
In the mood for adventure? Stop by Shediac Paddle Shack to choose from SUP paddle boarding or kayaking as you explore the Scoudouc River.
Want to see and be seen? The Pointe-du-Chêne Wharf is a must. Home to restaurants, gift shops, ice cream stands and more, the wharf guarantees great people watching and epic sunsets.
Shediac Bay Cruises
Want to hit the open seas? Book with Shediac Bay Cruises, departing from the Pointe-du-Chêne, and get a pirate’s view of the bay, Skull Island, and more.
Shediac’s main attraction is without a doubt, Parlee Beach, its salt water beach, where thousands of tourists and locals flock to swim, build sandcastles, and watch countless boats sail past on a hot summer day.
Where to Dine:
In the mood for fish & chips or a lobster club? Check out the Sandbar on the Pointe-du-Chêne wharf and enjoy fresh seafare with an ocean view. Want to grab something on the go? Head to the Lobsta Rollin food truck on the wharf for a lobster roll.
In search of the best fried clams? Drive the coast from Cap-Pelé to Shediac to taste some of our province’s best at spots like Chez Leo, the Lobster Deck, and Aboiteau. On Sundays, shop local and visit the Shediac Market for delicious food and gifts by local vendors.
So pack your sunscreen and your beach bag and visit Shediac, New Brunswick before the summer ends!
