Beaubassin-est, New Brunswick, Canada

The road going down the beach is popular for birdwatching and has a rest area near the marsh. Parlee Beach, one of Canada's nicest beaches is also only 2.9 KM from the house and there are also many other beaches and wharves around.
You may want to take a couple of days to explore the lovely tourist town of Shediac (The Lobster Capital of the World), indulge at one of our wonderful eateries, watch a movie at the old fashioned Drive-In, soak up the sun on any of the magnificent beaches or grab a mouth-watering treat from Adorable Chocolat or The Moque Tortue Bistro.
To resume it all, this place is perfect for couples or solo travelers to unplug, exhale and unwind.
