Shediac is known as the Lobster Capital of the World. Get your picture taken beside the world's largest lobster.

Shediac

Cracking open a juicy lobster is just the beginning of your stay in Shediac… a vacation paradise nestled along New Brunswick’s spectacular eastern seashore.

Take a dip in the finest saltwater beaches in Eastern Canada! With waters peaking at 24 degrees Celsius (75 degrees Fahrenheit), it’s some of the warmest water north of Virginia. Boating, windsurfing, golf and hiking are just a few of the attractions on or near its pristine, sprawling beaches.

About town there are many fine restaurants serving succulent seafood to tempt your palate, from scallops to Atlantic salmon to lobster, of course! Stroll through the Corridor of Lights… a special touch to downtown Shediac. Stop for a rest at an outdoor café, or search for that special trinket in the many shops, boutiques and art galleries.

See the best of local artisans at the Artist Village and at the Sunday Market. Don’t miss the Lobster Festival and the many other activities!

Shediac is a community of firsts! New Brunswick’s first steam sawmill was built here, the first passenger railroad in the Maritimes was located here, and this is where the first shipbuilding firm in New Brunswick started out. 
And with such a vibrant and rich Acadian heritage, it’s also fitting that this was the home of the first Congrès mondial acadien (Acadian World Congress)
