Two beaches have been groomed for the enjoyment of our visitors. Come get your fill of salt water, wind and nature!

Located along the Northumberland Strait, Kouchibouguac National Park is popular for its sandy beaches and warm coastal waters, and is ideal for swimming and spending a summer’s day at the beach. Tranquil lagoons and tidal rivers, protected by sand dunes, provide ideal conditions for paddling.
