Breathe deeply of the salty air.
As waves gently lap at the shoreline, new ideas will tug on your heartstrings. Why not sit for a while? Listen to the surf. And simply feel the peace. New Brunswick’s beaches remind you to stop. And take it all in. Welcome to the warmest saltwater beaches in Canada—in fact, the warmest in Canada, and even warmer than anything north of Virginia (up to 29 degrees Celsius, or 84 degrees Fahrenheit). Our warmest beaches are along the Northumberland Strait on the Acadian Coast, from Kouchibouguac to Murray Corner. But all of our beaches are warmly inviting.
New Brunswick has over 50 saltwater and freshwater beaches to discover. Let the kids build sandcastles and splash in the waves, while you sit back and soak up the memories of when you were just as carefree. Ready to stretch your legs? Stroll along beach boardwalks, spot waterfowl and shorebirds in the marshes, explore tidal pools, comb for driftwood and sea glass, or even search for ancient fossils. New Brunswick's coastal landscape moves at the pace you decide feels right.
One day at the beach is relaxing. More than one day is positively restorative. So consider renting a cottage or campground by the sea, and make paradise your home for a while.
