Shediac Things to Do

  • Giant Lobster

    The main attraction in Shediac is the giant lobster statue. You can climb it and ride it if you want but just don't fall off. I saw lots of parents yelling at their kids to be careful. Recently, this statue even made it to a GM car commercial along with a number of other large statues in Canada. Stop by the gift shops beside the statue. One was...

  • Sandspit

    Sandspit is more of a kids destination as it is a small place with carnival activities. However me and my friends are still kids at heart and we love to go on the Go-Karts. They also have water bumpers, mini-golf, arcades....

  • Worlds biggest Lobster

    Shediac is home to the worlds biggest lobster and is considered the lobster capital of the world.Tourists seem to love to visit this monument. More conveniently it is located just beside the tourism office!

  • Go biking!!!

    Shediac is small enough that you can get pretty much anywhere on your bike. So take a bike ride and go explore!!! It seems that every time I go to Shediac I do over 30 Kms of biking. During My trip in July/August I brought my bike which was orignaly worth $1200. It was halarious since my friend was stuck riding beside me with the good old...

  • Take a drive to see cottages

    Like previously mentioned, Shediac seems to be attracting some very wealthy people. A few that I know of include the hockey legend Rollie Melanson and the current major league baseball player, Real Cormier. Shediac is fairly small and it does not take much effort to find the big Mansions. Here is one of the nicest I found. A massive lot with a...

  • Hot Wheels!!

    Simply put......there are some amazing cars in Shediac during the summer. Shediac seems to be attracting some very well off travelers!!! A quick example is this older Ford Cobra 427.

  • Acadian Entertainment

    The Acadian culture is very different and I have yet to see anything that compares to it. I am proud to call myself an Acadian!When I was last in Shediac at the end of July and start of August, there was one of the biggest concert of the year taking place there. The concert consisted of Cayouche (a comedian/bum type singer), 1755 (a classic acadian...

  • Hotel Shediac

    The Hotel Shediac, as you can see, is an old historic Hotel. Unfortunately since May/02 it has been closed. The place is getting somewhat rundown which is pretty discouraging. It would be a great restoration project but I can only imagine how much that would cost.

  • Parlee Beach

    Parlee Beach is known to have some of the warmest waters north of Virginia. It is a well known beach in New-brunswick and across eastern Canada. It is also one of the many provincial parks located in New-Brunswick. The daily fee is 8$ per car.*********There is a way to enter the beach for free and it is completly "legal". If you continue east on...

  • Drive in theater

    The Neptune drive in, gives you the opportunity to go back in the past and watch a drive in movie. The drive in itself is well kept and houses washrooms and a canteen! I was also impressed by the quality of the movie on the board. Usually the drive in shows two movies. The price for one adult is 7$. We saw Spiderman 2 and White Chicks.The drive in...

  • Sunset

    Take a walk down to the beach to admire the beautiful sunset over the horizon. If your lucky like we were and go at the right time during the year you will be one of the few people on the beach.....Breathtaking....

  • Parlee Beach

    This beach boasts miles of golden sand, the warmest waters north of Virginia, ample parking and supervised swimming.

    Captain Dan's seems to be the spot to go on a Saturday night for a drink with friends. Although I did not a fancy a visit I did walk by on a Sunday night and it seemed the people were having a blast. So go to Captain Dan's if you want to smell the salt water blow by as you enjoy your cold beer. I don't know how I missed it this time, but i will venture a visit next trip for sure! They also have live entertainment each night of the week!
    Went to Captains dan's and it is an alright place. I didn't go when it was popular tourist season and so there wasn't much hapening. Hopefully be a little better next time.

    Dress Code: Jeans, Biking Chaps, bikini......anything really...come on it's Shediac!

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Island Beach is a store with all your beach needs. I strongly reccomend bringing your beach gear since outfits like this charge a fortune for items. Expect to pay 12$ for a small bottle of sun tan lotion if you run out!

    What to pay: Overpriced

Shediac Off The Beaten Path

  • Parlee Beach at 9.30AM....

    Parlee Beach at 9.30AM. Deserted. We were the only ones there but more soon arrived. Because we were so early we got in free.

  • Parlee Beach

    Swimming and sunning here is a great joy. The beach is all sand and to swim or just get wet you can walk out a long way. There are lots of life guards on duty and a safe area is plainly marked with buoys.

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
