Best Beaches!

beach2Braeside Inn is just a stone skip away from some fantastic beaches. With 450 km (280 mi.) of coastline, it is a known fact that we host have some of the warmest waters north of the Carolinas. Where the sea and the sky meet long stretches of white sand and red, that’s where our outdoor fun starts with sea kayaking, canoeing, sandcastle contests, rockhounding, beachcombing, and hiking. The coast also adds an extra element of “breathtaking” to our golf, birding, and hiking and cycling. Visit one of these many beaches during your stay with us…
