  • When the sand is visible it's gorgeous. Visit every year. Very close to amenities. The bonus is nearby Warren Lake.

  • I rugged and beautiful natural beach. But beware, the undertows are nothing to joke about! Had a lovely stroll on the sandy part and dipped our feet in the ocean, a quick yet stunning stop.

  • This beach has waves on the ocean side and warmth on the freshwater side. The view was amazing,the water clear and the sand was perfect for castle building.
  • FYI: Put the other Ingonish Beach as your destination in google maps. This one down Beach Crossing Road will lead you to some residential areas and only a roadside area to park your cars. Although a beautiful and tranquil location, I don’t think that the private homeowners in the area would want tourists to park right outside of their homes when there is a proper parking area at the Ingonish Beach just a few km away.
