Trip Planner: Canada / Newfoundland and Labrador / Newfoundland / Gros Morne National Park / Cow Head / Shallow Bay Beach
Take a long walk gathering shells and driftwood at Shallow Bay Beach, one of the longest sandy beaches in Newfoundland. In the summer, the shallow water remains warm enough for swimming, and in the fall, the northern part of the beach attracts hundreds of migrating shorebirds offering great photo opportunities. The high dunes behind the beach serve as their nesting grounds, and two boardwalks allow you to explore the dunes without disturbing the environment. Amenities include a beach pavilion with a restroom and changing room, as well as a picnic area. Arrange to visit Shallow Bay Beach and other attractions in Gros Morne National Park using our Gros Morne National Park trip planner.
