Kilarney Lake Beach


When I lived on Cape Breton Island, sunny warm days were spent lounging in my beach chair with a beverage reading or socializing with friends and jumping into cool refreshing water of the Bras d’Or Lake.

Skipping forward to my move to New Brunswick, I realize how I took that beach for granted. Even thought I am in a Maritime province famed for the Fundy coastline, finding a decent beach to spend the day at takes planning and usually hours to get to.

Kilarney Lake is my quick go-to. It has a lovely sand beach on a small freshwater lake. You can usually find me under one of the large shady trees in front of the lifeguard house. The beach is life-guard serviced in the summer. Amenities include change rooms and pit toilets and more than 20 kilometres of nature trails. There is plenty of parking.

    1. Just 16 active cases within our 4 provinces, of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI, and NFLD.
      Only 4 cases in New Brunswick. I just stay away from other people, but there would rarely be more than 100 at this beach on a busy day..and there is lots of space.
