About this place
Barren's Beach is a small, sheltered beach nestled between dunes and a rugged quartzite headland. It is a popular swimming and fishing spot. Whales sheltering near shore in spring may be visible from the beach. The area also features an interpretive display and art exhibit that provide intriguing insights into the area’s natural and cultural values, including the park’s international significance as a conservation area.
The art exhibit, which is part of a giant park map, is hands-on and provides a bit of fun for the kids.
