This is such a beautiful beach to hang out at all day and watch the surfers, or simply to walk. You can see harbour seals from the beach, too. It's also a spectacular place to see the sunset!

Stunning place for an evening stroll along the beach, watching the sunset with incredible scenery and wildlife in every which way.

A perfect spot to enjoy the beach when the weather gets a little bit too much! The sand is not like in the Caribbean but it is acceptable. The water is cold but refreshing in the hot weather. Bring your own picnic and sun umbrellas to get a little bit of shade during the time you plan to spend there. Fantastic place to go with the children.

This place offers some of the best sunsets I have ever scene. It helps to be there in the fall. Summer can be really foggy.

We enjoyed walking on the beach. It was a bit cold for swimming, but great for walking. It was not crowded but it did not feel too lonely.
