Beaches Are Everywhere!
Canada beaches.. there are many of them. Some Canada beaches entertain larger crowds than others. Some are enjoyed by you only and are operating under the radar.
In many Canadian communities the local, easily accessible sandy beaches are destinations for relaxation, popular events and activities. Some of the more popular activities enjoyed at Canadian beaches include swimming, beachcombing, volleyball. kayaking, camping, canoeing, birdwatching, wind surfing, boating, sailing, kite surfing, concerts, dances, scuba diving, etc.
Every province and territory has Canadian beaches. Some provinces and territories enjoy fresh water beaches and some enjoy salt water beaches - but on the west coast and east coast of Canada they enjoy both.
There are sandy beaches, pebbled beaches and boulder beaches. Some are covered in white sand, red sand, broken sea shells, seaweed, driftwood logs, polished rocks and/or flat rock.
Many of the more popular commercialized sandy beaches include concession food stands, picnic areas, docks, swimming areas, life guards, volleyball nets, playgrounds, showers, paid parking and washrooms. Most of these beaches are easily accessible by paved roads and many are located in large parks.
Get away from it all
The beaches located in the wilderness regions of the country are accessed via rough gravel roads and they tend to be less populated, more rugged with less services (but not in all cases). Then we have the sandy beaches not accessible by vehicle. These beaches are located at the end of hiking trails and backpacking routes.
Remote Beach Vacations
Boating, off roading, kayaking, canoeing and flightseeing tour companies provide transportation to some of the more remote beaches located on some of Canada's far away islands and wilderness back country regions. Price, means of transportation, what is included vary per tour company. There are tour companies providing day trips and there are some providing multi day excursions. What is included in each multi day tour varies. Some tour companies, may or may not , include camping equipment, sleeping bags, accommodations, meals, lessons and entertainment.
