No matter where you go in Cape Breton, you’re never very far from a beach. Stretching along the shores of countless bays and harbours, beaches of all descriptions and personalities abound — created and shaped over time by wind, waves and tides, no two exactly alike. Beaches of Cape Breton is an open invitation to everyone who craves a getaway from the hubbub of daily life — a place where sun sparkles off blue-green water and the warmth of the sand melts away troubles, if only for a few hours. You may choose to stretch out on the glorious sand dunes of Aspy Bay, stroll the cobbled coastlines of Framboise, or spend a family day in a secluded inlet on the Bras d’Or. Whatever your preference, Beaches of Cape Breton will be your personal guide to these very special places. In an informative and user-friendly format, this book will tell you exactly where to find these beaches and what to expect when you get there. You will learn important details such as beach access, on-site amenities, lifeguard services, environmental concerns, and much more. And as an added bonus, scanable codes will connect you with current weather conditions, tides, maps, and a wide range of other relevant information. Whether you love to swim, stroll, build sandcastles, boogie board, commune with nature or just chill — in Cape Breton THERE’S A BEACH FOR THAT!
