Located just inside the North Rustico entrance to the national park, North Rustico Beach is a bit of an under-appreciated jewel. With little to no walk from the parking area to the sand, this is a great option to consider for your next beach day. You can expect to find lovely wide sandbars at low tide which are perfect for little beach builders and lovely views of the iconic red sandstone cliffs to the west. It is also just a short hop to the centre of the Town of North Rustico with all of its amenities. Gulf Shore Way West, the multiuse trail that parallels the roadway, can be accessed from here for a hike or cycle through the park to Oceanview.
