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 offers an angelic and tranquil getaway, since the region surrounding the beach isn't too crowded at all.
