Salmon Cove Sands is one of Newfoundland's most scenic and user-friendly beaches. Wide beach, soft sands, offshore isles and sea-cliffs, low dunes, a stream mouth -- a great spot for a day at the beach, or just a short strop to enjoy the view.

This is one of the few sand beaches on the rocky coast of Newfoundland (and it is fairly large). Even more unique is the fact that the sand is black, although depending on the sun, sometimes is does not appear real black. There was a...More

After spending close to three weeks visiting all corners of Newfoundland, we find this amazing beach... yes, a beach, with real sand, in a most beautiful landscape. OK, maybe not the best for swimming in early June but still quite a surprise. Very rough road...More

We packed a cooler and spent the day at Salmon Cove. It's a beautiful beach. The water is really too cold to 'swim' in, but our children loved just slashing near the shore and playing in the sand - it's perfect for sandcastles. If you...More

Its ~$7 to get a car in for the day. There is a small snack shop and excellent bathrooms (they had air fresheners!). The beach has great sand for castle making. And the views are stunning. A great beach to play on with the kids.

I believe it is owned and operated by the municipality of Salmon Cove. So in a sense, it is both public and private.

7 dollars per car no matter how many people are in it, if you choose to walk in and not park on property it is 2 dollars a person. There are picnic tables set up some are in gazebos!
