If you like your beaches unspoiled and untamed, then take a trip to North Rustico Beach. Wander through dunes and on the soft, red tinged sand, picturesque in sun or snow. Lobster fishermen linger in the bay providing the local restaurants with food, while ospreys and gannets reside in the cliffs, diving into the sea for their own seafood. You'll need to take a ferry over to the beach, but you won't be short of things to do, with activites like kayaking and cycling and exploring the quaint fishing town habours eateries.

  • We walked the beach briefly on a rainy cold day in September. It was beautiful and would definitely love to go back on a hot sunny summer day!  more »
  • We were astounded by the beautiful beaches. The red sand and the dunes. Walked barefoot along the beach. The photos don't do it justice. The sand is deep red.  more »
  • Quiet beach to relax on, people, birds and bugs were all scares - the sea was a bit cool for a swim, but the sand bars made it fun  more »
