Black Brook Beach, Cape Breton Island

(4.9/5 based on 45 reviews on the web)
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.
