TOP 3 SANDY BEACHES in CANADA
2014 Traveler’s Choice Awards
Top 3 Beaches in Western / Northern Canada
Western / Northern Canada Beaches – There are so many sandy beaches in Canada it is hard to know where to start.
Many of our sandy beaches in Canada grace the cover of magazines and, so many more, do not even receive mention in our tourism literature which is sent out to travelers by our official tourism associations. Why? Because they are remote and hard to access.
The beaches which splash the pages of our magazines, newspapers and websites are the beaches which are easily accessable and provide many services and amenities. These beaches attract travelers and families.
Often these beaches are the front yards of communities or the highlights in a provincial or national park. These are the type of sandy beaches which travelers are attracted too. These are the beaches which travelers read about, become educated about and enjoy activities at.
Our Canadian beaches are home to many activities including swimming, picnicking, boating, sailing, fishing, water skiing, kite surfing, surfing, jet boating, sunbathing, camping, kayaking, canoeing, birding and more.
