Campobello Island

Campobello Island sits at the entrance to Passamaquoddy Bay, adjacent to the entrance to Cobscook Bay, and within the Bay of Fundy and is one New Brunswick's Fundy Islands. The island has no road connection to the rest of Canada; the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Bridge connects it to nearby Lubec. Reaching mainland Canada by car without driving across an international border is possible only during the summer season.
