In celebration of spring (just a few days late) we drove to Belliveaus Cove on Sunday. This fabulous cobble beach on the Bay of Fundy in the area of Baie Sainte Marie or Saint Mary’s Bay, forms part of the largest gravel beach deposit on the Bay of Fundy. Wind off the Bay of Fundy keeps the temperature cool even on balmy days like Sunday when the ambient temperature was around 5C. The path called sentier Piau begins here at Belliveaus Cove. There are few places along the Bay of Fundy where an easy level path follows the shore, but this is one.
This wide loop trail is flat, with the cobbles removed for most of the 4.5 km making for easy walking. It skirts a lagoon on the inland side and the beach on the other.
