“Excellent beach/park/picnic area”
Review of Black Brook Beach

Black Brook Beach
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Fabulous area to enjoy the beach, park or picnic area. Large parking facilities, clean washroom area, children's play area and hiking trails all in one area! Plan to spend a minimum of 2 hours in this area. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the beach view from one of the picnic tables. A perfect spot to stop and breathe deep for a while.

At least it used to be a secret. When we went 40 and 20 years ago it was empty. This time it was full, but there is plenty of parking. Facilities: washrooms and changing, places to cook, great hikes from the beach. Beach is round rocks (bigger than softball, smaller than basketball) that have been moved from the ocean's edge so their is nice sand into the water. Water is cool, but was full of people. Great rivers coming into the beach at both ends: one calm and looked good to swim in the other a waterfall.

A very nice beach with some nice views. There was only 1 other couple there when we were there.. There is a waterfall at the left end of the beach. Water was warm.

The Atlantic Coast trail which goes up and over Black Brook cove is breath takingly beautiful! Take each side trail and pause to enjoy all the sea and mountain vistas. You can make this hike longer if you are willing to pick your way across a cobble beach to continue your hike. What an amazing place!

If you like boogy boarding or just jumping the waves then this is the beach for you. Hours of fun and warm water to boot!
