This is a must for any visitor to Channel Port-aux-Basques. This has it all for the site seer and birdwatcher and outdoors person. Gorgeous Seashore scenery and Beach Area.

This beach is located at the base of a estuary somewhat protected from the wind It feels like you are on the outer banks Warm sand and pretty warm water Spend at least an hour taking in the views worth the detour from the TCH

This is a great walk along the beach and water edge. The first part has a wooden boardwalk so it is good for people with mobility issues. Once you get to the other side of the beach, the rest of the trail is gravel. We...More

We actually stayed in our RV in the parking for a couple of days. Nice sandy beach and a boardwalk. A few horses were in a field nearby. You can walk down the first road to find another more secluded beach. We had the dog...More

One of the most beautiful walks on the trip, and very easy walking, no ups and downs, which is good when you have tired legs after the more streneous hikes. Amazing rocks and cliffs on the way.

This is a beautiful beach with great walking trails and a wheelchair accessible boardwalk. I would definitely plan an overnight stay before you catch the ferry as there are many beautiful places just a short drive from the Ferry Terminal.

This walk was the perfect antidote for over-eating during my 2 week stay on the Island! Fresh air, beaches, rocky shorelines, boardwalks, resting benches on prominent head-lands overlooking the ocean, and even farmlands - this hike has it all! Easy walking with many photo opps!

This trailway is beautiful and is well maintained. I've walked it myself from the parking lot to the ocean. Keep following past the boardwalk and you will see the beach and hear the ocean. It's absolutely gorgeous, especially on a nice day!

It is a great way to distress; you can begin by walking the boardwalk itself or just stepping down onto the first beach and walk along. Continuing on the trail, you have a beautiful view of the ocean; just turn around and you can see...More
