This beach is a bit off the beaten tourist track in Cape Breton and we found it by accident. But it's great! Good sand, clean, lots of room. Lots of parking.

At 10am on a Sunday, we had this enormous beach to ourselves. You can wade in, and the water is clear (no kelp, seaweed,..). The sand dunes make a nice barrier, beautiful rock cliffs on either end.

Great beach for skim boarding! Nice sandy beach really showing Cape Breton in all its beauty with its sand bars and great beach for beach combing.
