|Description & Services|
|Information||Salt water and freshwater. A sandy ocean beach is washed away each winter and re-deposited here each spring by the action of the waves. Over thousands of years, large cobblestones on the beach are worn round and smooth from being ground against one another by the action of the waves. A barachois composed of beach cobbles blocked off a cove centuries ago, cutting it off from the salty Atlantic Ocean. Cross the barachois to take a dip in warm Freshwater Lake.
Services: washrooms and change houses, a playground, a picnic area, tennis courts and a canteen during July and August. Surf guards are on duty at the saltwater beach during July and August. Dogs are not permitted in the supervised area of the beach.
