The Seashore Discovery Beach

Murray Beach is an ideal spot to relax during your tour of the southeastern portion of New Brunswick's Acadian Coastal Drive. You'll want to take in the breathtaking views of sunrises and sunsets over the mighty Northumberland Strait, enjoy stunning vistas of the world-famous Confederation Bridge and visit the nearby Cape Jourimain Nature Centre. Birdwatchers will fall in love with the avian bounty to be found in this area.

There are lots of activities and attractions nearby, including sea kayaking, farmers markets, lighthouses, covered bridges, festivals and historic sites.

Murray Beach’s unsupervised, warm saltwater and sandy beach is the perfect place to go beachcombing, escape the daily routine and re-energize the soul with the sounds of the sea. Pets are not allowed on the beach, but they are allowed on leash in the rest of the park. Change houses, washrooms, playground and picnic areas are available on site.

Please note that all park events are weather-dependent. Should you have any questions, please call the park prior to your arrival.
