Shallow Bay Beach - Parks Canada Gros Morne National Park

Cow Head

A 5 km long sandy beach with pale sand. Offshore, the main beach is protected from waves by low rocky islands. The water is shallow and warms up to swimming temperature in the summer. The northern, more remote part of the beach is backed by high dunes, and can receive impressive waves after a storm. The area attracts shorebirds, especially in the fall, when there can be hundreds of migrating shorebirds clustered on the upper beach at high tide.
