Crystal Crescent Beach Provincial Park, Sambro
(4.9/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
Crystal Crescent Beach Provincial Park boasts three white sand beaches with boardwalks--the second being dog-friendly and the third a nudist beach. Take your shoes off and let the soft sand gently caress your feet as you walk along one of the beaches. The water is too cold for swimming, even in the summer months, but you can still wade barefoot through the shoal. Note that restroom facilities are scarce and there are no food stands at the beach, so bring your own snacks and water. If you want to explore the coastal nature, go bird-watching, or have a go at rock climbing, look for the entrance to a hiking trail that loops along the coastline. Using our online itinerary creator, Sambro attractions like Crystal Crescent Beach Provincial Park can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
