Amenities and Ambiance

Cyrill Bay is a natural bay with deep green waters that wash ashore flattening the tan colored sand at the highest point of tide. Directly after that, the ground consists of a variety of shells and pebbles, which can be hard on feet -- shoes are recommended. Edging out the beach is a thick forest, and a short hike will take you to a glorious waterfall.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.

Cyril Bay brings visitors a calm and serene enclave, due to the fact that the location that surrounds the beach contains little build-up and is free of urbanization.
