Your Best Beach Vacation Begins Here

If you’re ready for salty surf and sun-soaked sand, our miles of unspoiled coast and sandy beaches mean your best beach vacation has arrived. You can comb them, camp near them or catch a tan on them – just choose the one that suits you best!

Splash into fun at any of our beaches perfect for swimming (we have over 50) or lean back in your chair and let each day turn into a well-earned family time out. Build sandcastles, play beach volleyball and enjoy the serenity of days spent by the sea.

Explore our sand dunes and Discovery Beaches to uncover a different side of New Brunswick's coastal landscape. Marvel at tidal pools, search for ancient fossils, stroll along beach boardwalks... your possibilities for discovery are endless.

With sea grass whispering in the breeze and brilliant blue ocean stretching as far as your eye can see, there’s no question about it – you’ll want to park your beach towel and stay.

Looking for a little piece of paradise for your well-deserved holiday? Book a cottage or campground by the sea!

Beach Vacation Ideas for You

With hundreds of kilometres of coastline, there’s at least a week’s worth of amazing New Brunswick beach experiences to keep you afloat. It’s what summer is all about – a perfect time to play at the beach. Here are a few of our best sandy, sun-drenched shores to get you started.

Sea & Salt Marshes
Swim, relax and bask in the sun at Beresford Beach on beautiful Chaleur Bay. A canteen, outdoor entertainment and children’s activities make this the ultimate spot for a family beach vacation. Learn all about the Beresford salt marshes with a guided tour.

Sun & Sand
Soak up the sun at Parlee Beach Provincial Park, one of North America’s finest beaches! Enjoy sugar-white sand and the warmest salt water in Canada, plus tons of recreational activities and plenty of lively Acadian spirit.

Sandcastles & Starfish
Head to New River Beach Provincial Park and explore the tidal pools at this Discovery Beach for an up-close look at our tiniest residents. If you’re in the area in late July, let your creativity inspire and go for gold at the annual Sand Sculpture Competition.
