Black Brook Beach, Cape Breton Island

4.9
#5 of 38 in Beaches in Nova Scotia
Beach Nature / Park
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. Arrange to visit Black Brook Beach and other attractions in Neil's Harbor using our Neil's Harbor family vacation planner.

  • (Small) Beach surrounded with nice waves and a well appointed ground. Since the Cabot Trail, choose the entry that says "Jack Pine / Coastal Trail" and turn right to choose the parking lot that leads to the beach. Do not miss the beautiful waterfall at the end of the beach. For access (at the top), it is best to park in the place for hiking. At this location, take an hour to complete (easy) Trek the gray pine.
