Highlights

Note: Due to COVID-19, the visitor experience at Parks Canada places will be different than it has been in the past. The health and safety of visitors, employees and all Canadians is of the utmost importance.

Parks Canada is asking visitors to comply with recommendations from Nova Scotia public health authorities by wearing a mask in indoor public spaces, and by respecting recommended social distancing measures at all times.

Parks Canada’s network of protected places is large and diverse. Visitor access, services, and even opening dates may vary across Cape Breton Island and Canso depending on local circumstances. Please visit pc.gc.ca/ns and follow Parks Canada’s social media channels for information and updates on the status of all Parks Canada places.

Overview

For those seeking a quieter, more secluded beach experience, this long expanse of sand beach is very inviting. Families will enjoy splashing in the gentle waves, building epic sandcastles, and sharing a picnic under the shade of apple trees.  

Walk the shoreline down to the Clyburn estuary then cool off with a saltwater swim. Help protect the special ecology of this area. Avoid walking on the dune grasses, which cover the sand dunes surrounding the beach and are home to several species of birds

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.
