Shediac, a self-proclaimed lobster capital, is a busy summer beach town and home of the annual July lobster fest. Don't fail to have your picture taken with the 'World's Largest Lobster' sculpture – you can't miss it! (OK, if the big claw doesn't grab your attention, it's handily located near the helpful tourist office).
It seems on any hot weekend that half the province is flaked out on the sand at Parlee Beach, turning the color of cooked lobster. South at Cap-Pelé are vast stretches of more sandy shorelines. Terrific Aboiteau Beach comprises over 5km of unsupervised sand, while others have all amenities and lifeguards.
