Black Brook Beach, Cape Breton Island

(45+ reviews on the web)
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 Sydney using our Sydney family vacation planner.
