“one of the Marine Wonders of the World”
The Bay of Fundy is one of the Marine Wonders of the World with tides rising as much as 16.3m (53 vertical feet) over a 12-hour period twice each day. Cape Enrage offers one of the most spectacular views of the natural phenomenon from its towering cliffs and has been a light station and fog alarm since 1838; the current light tower is over 140 years old. About half a kilometre before you arrive at the Cape Enrage Interpretive Centre you will pass Barn Marsh Island beach.This extensive sandbeach is covered during the last two hours of the incoming (flood) tide and the first two hours of the outgoing (ebb) tide. The exposed, sandy ocean floor extends for about two hundred metres at low tide and its width extends from Inner Head to Outer Head, the latter being the cliffs of Barn Marsh Island upon which sits the Cape Enrage lighthouse.
