  • Shallow Bay Beach.  A white sand beach, about 10 km long and open to the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Shallow Bay Beach is a great place to swim, take a stroll, or just lay in the sand sunbathing.  If you want quiet and solitude, the beach is a place to be.

  • The Arches.  Just 25 kms North of Cow Head are the Arches.  The Arches are a geological wonder, with the "arches" being formed by the power of the ocean as it carved away at the rock to form a very scenic attraction.
