beautiful sand dunes but the beach is very cold but nice. Kids loved running and rolling down the hills. Its a great adventure walking through the trails and around and over the Dunes.

Great exercise walking up and down the dunes. The beach is a little colder then the rest of the beaches at Sandbanks, but absolutely lovely and so unique.

This is the less-busy beach at Sandbanks Provincial park, but in my view it's nicer to visit. High dunes rising out of the water are really unique - still lovely powdery white sand, long shallow entry which is good for kids, and a playground and...More

You can go farther along the dunes to different locations. There is a wetland area as well that you can walk through. Clean washrooms close to beach.

Great beach! If you like to hike, you'll love climbing the dunes! Kick off your shoes and wander! Bare feet is best! You'll get a good workout and some great views. The beach is in a little cove, so where it's pretty windy everywhere else,...More
