Best Beaches in Newfoundland
Aug 25, 2017
Newfoundland is wild, romantic and intoxicatingly beautiful! Get far away from the buzz of modern life when you travel to Newfoundland’s rugged coastal wilderness. If you’re looking for a great beach to visit while you’re in Newfoundland this year, look no further! We’ve selected a few of our favourite NL beaches to share with you.
Salmon Cove Sands. Beaches are some of the most romantic places in the natural world. This beautiful beach, however, is particularly romantic – it’s actually heart-shaped! If you’re looking for a great place to go for an anniversary or even a proposal, Salmon Cove Sands is it. The beach is set against the dramatic backdrop of rocky cliffs plummeting into the Atlantic Ocean below and its dark grey sand adds a feeling of allure and mystery to the place. If you want to get a better view of the beach, you can hike up to the cliffs and admire the sweeping view below.
Shallow Bay Beach. Gros Morne National Park has a lot of wonderful attractions, and Shallow Bay Beach is at the top of our list. While pebbly beaches aren’t the best for kids hoping to build sandcastles, they are awesome for people who love pure, natural places. Shallow Bay Beach is one of these captivating pebble beaches. Come here to hunt for sand dollars and seashells or to watch the migratory shorebirds who visit each fall.
Middle Cove Beach. Any time of the year, this is a great beach to visit! Summer’s sunshine brings the typical beach fun, such as sunning on the shore and fishing in the water. However, winter’s chill winds bring the most breathtaking beauty to this lovely beach. Come in the winter to see the cliffs dressed in snowy white robes! You’ll also get to witness the stunning majesty of a winter waterfall, frozen in mid-cascade.
Deer Lake Beach. This beautiful Newfoundland beach is a popular place to do yoga. If you’re a yogi, why not visit and join one of the yoga classes on the sand? If you’d rather not get your flex on, Deer Lake Beach is a great place for relaxing, too. The beach features picnic tables, fire pits and a wooden boardwalk, making it an ideal spot for families on summer vacation.
Bottle Cove Beach. Experience wild Canada when you visit Bottle Cove Beach! Newfoundland’s most beautiful rugged beach is a must-see location. Here, you can hike to the top of the grassy cliffs to watch the waves thunder powerfully on the rocks below. You can also spend time in the calmer waters by the beach, where you’ll find solitude and views of some of the most beautiful marine scenery in Newfoundland.
