On an island full of spectacular beaches I think the best beach to go for swim is Tracadie Bay Beach. I may be a bit biased though considering you can see the beach from my salon! Tracadie Beach lies on the tail end of the string of gorgeous National Park beaches (Cavendish, Brackley, Stanhope, Tracadie!). Situated just outside provincial park boundaries means you can enjoy it without having to buy a provincial park pass, it’s pet friendly and it’s not as busy as it’s more well-know neighbouring beaches. And, with a long island of sand dunes just several hundred yards offshore it’s one of the most picturesque beaches on the island!
