Just slightly off the beaten path, is this beautiful and quiet little piece of heaven. White sand for plenty of walking and sand castle making. Pack a lunch, spend the day and don't forget your sunscreen!

Beautiful, clean, and not as cold as I expected!!! Perfect for barefoot walking and easy access for a dip even in late September. Soft clean sand, not crowded.

Beautiful sand beach - no amenities, no crowds, limited parking - but if you love the beauty of a natural seashore you will love this beach.

This was my favorite beach in the Shelburne area. It is a very long beach which made it great for walks. Usually was pretty empty too.

Quiet, underused even on a holiday. White sand, refreshing clear water. Limited parking, though - not more than 5 parking spots. Great place to take the dog.

This is a beautiful secluded beach. Not much signage to show you where to find the beach so unless you are local or can ask someone local, it may be hard to locate.

Roseway Beach is a family favourite. We love the great expanse of sandy and waves. There is a river that enters into the ocean which makes for some great paddling. Plan to bring a picnic and spend the day. There is an onsite portable washroom.

A great beach to go to if you do not like crowds. There are very few people there and the beach is beautiful. We took our grandchildren and the dog, they loved it.

A little hard to find, but when we did, it was lovely. Not a soul there. A definite refuge on a busy day. A mile or two of clean sand to explore. Beautiful !
