North Bay Beach Cape Breton Nova ScotiaSummer is coming! What better way to get ready than with a series of posts on one of the best summer adventures, THE BEACH!  Read on to hear about North Bay Beach in Ingonish, Cape Breton, or click on the links below to find more amazing Nova Scotia Beaches.

This beach is best for those who like a quieter beach day.  It is a beautiful beach with access to the ocean, but no freshwater access.  What you give up in amenities you gain back in space.  It is a large stretch of beach that also plays home to many bird species and dune vegetation.

Welcome fellow adventurers, explorers, foodies, knaves and those of questionable repute to The Local Traveler. This blog is dedicated to discovering the best parts of travel – craft beer, local wine, adventure, unique cuisine, and hidden gems. In December 2010, we were inspired to start this blog for two reasons. First of all, after listening to a radio story about the top environmental offenders in travel, we decided to find ways to reduce our personal carbon footprint. Secondly, we found ourselves in a position where we were flat broke but still had a huge desire to travel and explore So, we began investigating all the attractions accessible by car, bike, foot, and train. We learned to find adventure every day – at home, close to home, and much further afoot. We believe that travel is less about the destination and more about the journey. You don’t have to go far to find an adventure, sometimes the best experiences can be found right in your backyard.
