Self-proclaimed as “The Lobster Capital of the World”, the small seaside town of Shediac hosts a festival in July each year promoting its ties to lobster fishing.

The beach here - Parlee Beach that is – is without doubt the main attraction here. Lying within the boundaries of Parlee Beach Provincial Park, its soft golden sand stretches for miles. Some of the warmest salt water in Canada, along with a variety of activities, draws visitors and locals throughout the summer.

There's no shortage of things to do in Shediac. When you're done lying on the beach or enjoying some great lobster, jump in your RV and explore the surrounding areas. Or, book a cruise and learn how to catch, cook and eat lobster.

Back on land, wander through the shops, boutiques and art galleries in the town - you may just find that special something you've been looking for!

As a popular tourist resort, Shediac has no shortage of accommodation of every kind. Many RV Parks are located close to Shediac but we recommend you make reservations during the peak summer season.
