Best Place To Go Swimming

Rainbow Haven Beach

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.

The price of everything has more or less gone up including heating oil which means staying warm this winter is going to cost you more. What are your ways to try to cut down on heating costs?
