A Lighthouse of NewBrunswick

NB 44B Bouctouche Bar
latitude 46° 27' 40.1" N
longitude 64° 36' 46.6" W

Bouctouche Dune or Sandbar is connected to the mainland at a point roughly three-and-a-half miles north of Pointe à Jérôme and extends southeast for over seven miles, providing protection for the waters of Buctouche Bay. The southern tip of the sandbar lies about a mile off of Saint-Thomas-de-Kent, near where the Point Dixon Range Lights were established in 1881 to assist vessels in finding the entrance to the bay.

From Highway 11 in Bouctouche, take Exit 32 and travel east on Boulevard Irving. As you leave Bouctouche, the road will become Chemin Du Couvent (Route 475), which you need to follow for 9 km to reach the Irving Eco-Centre: La dune de Bouctouche. From there, it is a 22 km round trip hike out to the lighthouse. Alternatively, the lighthouse can be seen at a distance from Route 535 in Saint-Thomas-de-Kent.
