    A municipal beach site in town of Inverness, Inverness Beach is the perfect family beach with warm and shallow waters and beautiful, soft sand. Take a walk on the 1.5-km sandy beach or stroll on the boardwalk above the beach and catch sights of golfers playing Cabot Links, and be sure to grab an ice cream at the canteen. 

    New in summer 2018 the beach welcomed sand chairs, water chairs and sand mats that allows those with mobility issues to safely access the beach and water.

    • Mobi-Mats are portable, non-slip beach access mats for people with disabilities that provide beach access for wheelchairs, walkers, and strollers.
    • Mobi-Chairs are beach accessible wheelchairs that can float and are a one-size-fits-all!
    • Beach Access Chairs are wheelchairs that can be used to navigate in sand, snow, and other soft soils.

    Both types of chairs have non-corrosive, puncture resistant wheels as well as UV-protected frames to withstand saltwater and discolouration from the sun
