An amazing expanse of fine beach sand, interesting rock and beautiful grassy dunes. We walked it both morning and evening and enjoyed the gentle breeze with nothing but clean, fresh air. A beautiful spot not to be missed!

Been here a few times,the most recent just a few days ago.We noticed a lot of seaweed on the beach this time but Im sure the next really high water will take care of it.The beach is really wide when the tide is out.Part of the beach runs adjacent to Shallow Bay Parks Canada site

Great beach for a romantic walk. It is a gentle slope into the ocean, a hidden jewel where children can play in the water safely.

Shallow Bay beach is located at Cow Head just off the Viking Trail, Rout 430 in Gros Morne National Park. My wife and I had completed a cross country road trip in June and I stopped here in September on a return trip to Newfoundland to see things I missed. I was impressed with the facilities which seem to offer play areas for the kid’s and good opportunities to walk and see the beautiful scenery. This site will be appreciated by those interested in beaches, scenic views and photography. It may be less interesting to those who do not enjoy walking

It was hot the day we were here & the bugs were bad, lots of sand fleas & mosquitoes ( first encounter with the pesky insects ). The beach isn't very wide but it is long, good for a walk to stretch the legs.
