The nearby Cape Breton Highlands National Park is a popular overnight camping spot for daytime beach-goers.

Cape Enrage Beach, New Brunswick

Did you know New Brunswick has the warmest saltwater beaches in all of Canada? Cape Enrage Beach is a little different than the others, though. It’s more about the view than anything else. This 7km beach lies along the bottom of the cliffs on Barn March Island. If traditional sandy beaches are more your style, there are plenty of those in the province.

Long Beach, Vancouver Island, British Columbia

This 16+ km beach clocks in at the longest on Vancouver Island right between Tofino and Ucluelet in Pacific Rim National Park, which is probably the reason why they call it Long Beach! Just off the sand, beachgoers explore British Columbia’s rolling green mountains and rainforests. Walk along the beach with your eyes peeled for whales and sleep at one of the many nearby campgrounds after a day in the sun.
