Dennis Beach, New Brunswick is in the sheltered Bay of Fundy, close to the town of Waterside and within sight of the greenery-topped stacks at Hopewell Rocks.
The narrow sandy beach runs parallel to the 915 highway and access to the beach is from the parking area. Walk back towards the road and take the trail on the left that leads down to the sand.
The beach is popular for walks along the edge of the rolling surf with stunning coastal scenery within the UNESCO-listed Fundy Biosphere Reserve. There are rocky areas at either end of the sand which stretches for just over 1km.
Views from the beach take in Cape Enrage just along the coast with its squat white lighthouse. The towering tall red rock cliffs backing the beach have many interesting geological features created by wind and sea erosion.
Beach activities include tidal rock pooling, kayaking and swimming in the clean but cold water. From Dennis Beach a 7km loop trail through the national park offers scenic views and is popular for hiking and nature spotting.
