Black Brook Beach, Cape Breton Island

4.8
#2 of 10 in Beaches in Cape Breton Island
Take in the ocean views while soaking up some sun on the tucked away Black Brook Beach, situated within Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Flanked by a waterfall and crossed by a babbling brook, the beach makes an ideal spot for relaxing to different sounds of water. Indulge in the soft sand and the sights of washed-up driftwood, have a picnic in the designated area, or a romantic meal under a provided shelter--all at your own pace, without the buzz and jostling of other tourists. Later at night, gaze up at the stars warmed by a cozy bonfire. Our Cape Breton Island itinerary planner makes visiting Black Brook Beach and other Cape Breton Island attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The view from the beach is breath taking. You can walk along the beach to a water falls. Parking is easy.  more »
  • Stopped here while driving the Cabot trail. Nice little beach with lots of smooth rocks. Beautiful views of the cove.  more »
  • We spent a whole day at the beach. It was great! The waves were very high and we had lots of fun in the relatively warm waters. It can climb over the rocks to visit the small waterfall, which is located left of the beach. Toilets, changing rooms and picnic tables are also available, you should bring food and drinks. The parking lot is huge, but the beach is not crowded. Several times a day passes a boat with lifeguards.
