Shallow bay beach is a beautiful spot to visit. The beach has fine sand with an amazing view of the ocean. You can walk easily on this lovely beach. I hope if you are in the area you take time to stop in.

Very nice beach, the sand is very fine and the sunsets are amazing. We got perfect weather, no rain and sunshine the whole time.

As typical of most beaches, it was very rocky. If you have any walking difficulties, not a good spot to go for a walk. Beautiful spot to visit though.

We stopped into this beach quickly on our way up the coast and it was neat to see a sandy beach in Gros Morne. If we'd had more time, we would've enjoyed a walk down the sandy shores, for sure!

This is a lovely long white sand beach. We spent a couple of hours walking along the shoreline, examining washed up seaweed and driiftwood. If you are in the area, you should certainly stop here for an hour or so.

The beach goes on and on and the water is surprisingly mild in temp. The distance one can walk out into the water before it drops off is amazing.
