Black Brook Beach is perhaps one of the worlds most beautiful beaches. I must admit that I am partial to Cape Breton and have travelled to the Highlands National Park many times over the past ten years. However every summer I must visit this gem of a beach.This is about one and half hour drive from our wee cabin near Baddeck( could be a little less if we didn't stop to stock up on yummy treats for our beach pic nic). This is the only beach I have gone to in Cape Breton where I can swim in the salty sea and then rinse off in a fresh water waterfall. The experience is exhillerating to say the least. You can not see the waterfall from the main parking lot, or beach area but if you explore a little you will find it. The beach is never crowed, compared to the beaches in Massachusetts and your four legged companion (our dog Myles a yellow lab) can also go for a swim and relax on the beach as well. I love all of the rounded stones, and the raw beauty of this place. The water is a comfortable temp in July and August but the sea can whip up especially in a heavy storm as evidenced by the chunks of drift wood, found strewn up on the beach especially in early spring.
