Cumberland Municipality. Clarke Head is a promontory situated south of the town of Parrsboro on Minas Basin part of the Bay of Fundy. The arch is at the very end of the promontory.  It requires a hike around the bay at low tide or a careful crossing of the sand/mud flats. The Bay of Fundy has the world's highest tides so it is essential to pay close attention to the tide tables as the tides do move rapidly and there maybe a chance of being cut off by them. 

The area is also notable as the place where evidence of the world's smallest dinosaurs have been found. This was also the site of the largest fossil find in North America dating from the Triassic/Jurassic period.

The arch has a span of 9 ft and a height of 17 ft.
