Cruz Bay Beach is the most highly visible beach on Saint John as Wharfside Village trails along the water’s edge. Easy access and located directly next to the People Ferry. Between people hanging out in front of restaurants and bars, to folks renting dinghys or being picked up by a boat charter, this beach sees a lot of action. It is not the beach you would choose to go and hang out for the day because of the marine traffic, but it sure is a great place to let the dogs run, enjoy a few cocktails, and let the kids jump in for a quick dip. The Sea Grape trees provide a lot of shade along the way and there are beach chairs and picnic tables available for use, first come first serve.
Many Weddings are held at a restaurant in Wharfside Village with access to the beach for a Reception party. What a way to get married!
