A former settlement for a large number of United Empire Loyalists who landed following the American Revolution, Bedeque was deemed "the place that lies on the backward turn" by Native settlers.

One of the Island's most heavily farmed regions, the community is situated amongst endless potato fields, calling to mind the vital role agriculture plays in the well-being of so many Islanders. The Bedeque Bay, into which the Dunk River empties, teems with a variety of wildlife and is a popular destination for many anglers.

Bedeque is part of the Red Sands Shore Touring Region.
