The name Cape d'Or means the Cape of Gold when translated into English, and it's no wonder, the stunning scenery and coastal vistas glow in the beautiful hues of sunset as the tides continue to ebb and flow through the Minas Channel in the Bay of Fundy.
A lot of the dramatic coastal scenery of Cape d'Or has been shaped as a direct result of work of the famous Bay of Fundy tides. The Bay of Fundy is a body of water which is shared by the provinces of Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick in Canada and the State of Maine in the US.
With each erosive tide in the Bay of Fundy, the coastal sea cliffs are worn away to reveal semi precious stones and fossils making it a Rockhound's paradise. Cape d'Or is also a premier tourist attraction in Nova Scotia which features a lighthouse, restaurant, and accommodation - the perfect place to watch a stunning Fundy sunset complete with dramatic coastal scenery.
