This beach has beautiful soft white sand and is probably beautiful in the summer- however, I prefer longer unbroken stretches of beach and ones with high cliffs around them. Its quite narrow and I can see it would get really crowded in summer.

This beach is absolutely beautiful - especially considering it is in Canada. There is ample parking, easy to get to, and blue waters with a sandy beach and rocky treed area off to the side. Definitely worth going to. There are outhouses for facilities as...More
