15 of Canada’s most unique beaches


Parlee Beach

Size: 1.6 acres

Location: Parlee Beach Provincial Park, Pointe-du-Chêne, New Brunswick

What makes it unique: The Atlantic (and Canada) are believed to offer frigid waters, but Parlee promises visitors the warmest salt water north of the Mason-Dixon — 23˚C to 25˚C during peak season. The region boasts festivals, family fun, and amazing seafood, plus some of the best camping in the area.

Fun fact: Home of the world’s largest lobster (statue).
