Fodor's Review

A wide sweep of sandy beach backed by a dune system is the standout feature of this 530-acre park on Mabou Harbour. The only public-access beach in the area, it also has a fishpond, a picnic area, and change rooms, but its status as a protected natural environment prevents any further development and preserves its peaceful quality. Behind the beach are 12-km (7.5-mile) of hiking trails, through agricultural land and marshes, that have fine views. Amenities: parking

(free); toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.
