Gold Winner Rainbow Haven Beach
Silver Winner Crystal Crescent Beach
Bronze Winner Canada Games Centre
Atlantic waters may be cold, but the majority of Coast readers agree the beach is the best place to take a dip around here. In particular, the sand-and-cobble Rainbow Haven hits the top spot. It doesn’t hurt that its name sounds like something out of a fairytale, but that’s probably not why the Cow Bay beach got all those votes. It may have something to do with the showers and change houses on-site, easily navigable boardwalk and the killer view. This Haven’s one of the prettiest places to kick back and relax, or brave the waves and dive in.
