Natural arches just seem like such an unlikely geological formation that I’m probably going to list most of the major ones on this list.
The Hole in the Wall on Grand Manan Island is a pretty well formed one, with a whole about 4.5 m by 5.5. m. Standing right on the shore, theres periods where you can see the bottom of the arch, covered in a matt of seaweed.
With angles from nearby hikes and kayaks, there’s plety of cool shots to get if you want to play around. While the shots I have here don’t show it sometimes hikers make their way part way out on to the arch, for a very Instagramable image.
Grand Manan Island is off the coast of New Brunswick and Maine, essentially south of the Maritimes. Therefore you’ll need to drive and take a ferry to get to the island. From there the Hole in the Wall is fairly siple to find, since it’s near the ferry terminal in an area called North Head. There’s a park and campground in the area.
Being that I’m used to BC Ferries, the rates here some decent, with a car costing about $36 and passnegers $12. Other than that, I’m not sure there are any costs associated, other than probably camping or staying in a hotel overnight.
