Broad Cove Beach

251 Broad Cove Campground Rd

This hidden gem of a sandy beach can be found at the foot of the Broad Cove Campground. Dip into the Atlantic and rinse off in the neighbouring brook. Washrooms can be found within the campground. No surf lifeguards on duty.

Cape Breton Highlands is home to a variety of superb beaches. Choose between salt or freshwater, or even enjoy both at one location.  The Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of St. Lawrence and our tannin-rich brooks and lakes offer a wonderful variety for the water enthusiast.

Cape Breton Highlands National Park’s operating season is from mid-May to mid-October, with full services in July and August. The Cabot Trail is open year round. A park pass is required for use of all services and facilities in the national park, including beaches. Revenues are used to maintain and improve park services.
