Kejimkujik National Park Seaside
Harbour Rocks Trail (the trail to the beach) is now open!
Port Joli Head trail will remain closed for most of the spring while the new sections of trail dry out and harden.
An authentic Atlantic experience awaits you at Kejimkujik Seaside. You can hike through a labyrinth of dense shrubs on your way to the coast. Gradually, the horizon opens up to an expansive view of the Atlantic shoreline with headlands, islands, and bays. Once you arrive at the observation deck, your eyes will be riveted by the pure white sweep of Saint Catherines River Beach. This shining crescent of sand will enchant you with its turquoise waters.
The real adventures still await you at the Atlantic’s edge – seals basking on off-shore islets, one of the last undisturbed nesting beaches of the endangered piping plover, rafts of eiders and other seabirds, waves crashing on granite headlands, an abundance of orchids, and the traces of the Saint Catherines River sheep farm.
Kejimkujik Seaside will invigorate your every sense.
