Considered the best beach on the Bay of Fundy, its soft sand goes on forever, especially at low tide. The unsupervised salt water beach has a children’s playground, volleyball court, a restaurant and washroom facilities and change rooms.
When: May to October. Check the weather in the area, coastal conditions can be greatly different from the interior of the province. Fog is common. Pleasant breezes if you are looking to escape the heat. Water quality is variable, check weekly from May 15th to September 7th.
Fee: $8.00 to access the beach.
Happy fun in the sun from Maritime Mac
