|I always thought that beaches are for summer visits only, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Beaches are beautiful regardless of what time of the year you are visiting. And the best proof of that we can find along Herring Cove Beach. Here, where the sandy seashore is meeting the fresh-water Lake Glensevern with the forest of the Herring Cove Provincial Park as a backdrop, you will find a great variety of different types of landscape. Eagles are soaring high over rocky coastline, sandy beach, lake and forest. Not far from here one can wander along Eagle Hill Bog where rare plants are getting their nutrients out of the water, instead of the soil. A nd have you ever seen Gibraltar Rock, halfway over to the Roosevelt Natural park area? The trail can be started on either end und once you walked the entire length, you might want to return along the beach.|
Winter is such a wonderful time here. You will find beautiful clamp shells and the rocks are soooo smooth, - you will fill you pockets in no time. Of course, if you give us a call ahead of your visit we will be happy to guide you along, not only here at Herring Cove, but over the entire island. And remember, you can stay overnight at the Peacock House B+B in lovely Lubec and even get full meals there. Why not try it out? Come right over in the new year and enjoy the island.

Come see us on Campobello!
Our van is picking you up at any place on Campobello and Lubec. We do custom private tours and groups are welcome.
Our "Step-on Guide Service" has been popular for bus groups as well as private tours and we continue offering this great way to see Campobello in 2017. Our guide will meet you at any location on Campobello Island and you will enjoy all sights and hear about our rich history. All standard tours will last about 3hrs. If you are in a Motor coach or are a motor coach operator, your tour will be shorter as coaches cannot access the Natural area of the Roosevelt Park.
Specialty tours, also in combination with Tours to St.Andrews can be tailored to your personal wishes.
Coming from the U.S. you will need your passport and please remember that Campobello is on Atlantic Time.
For reservations please call or email a day prior to your intended visit. Any later attempt to make a reservation may go unsuccessful as we might be on a tour just when you call.
Thanks for visiting and be welcome to the island.
