A Secret Cave at Topsail Beach

Topsail Beach Cave with my nephews

There’s incredible beauty at Topsail Beach. You will find many children throwing rocks at the sea, residents basking in the sun or enjoying a beachside fire. It is quite the meeting place for community and something for the whole family to enjoy. It’s also the beginning portion of the East Coast Trail that goes from Topsail Beach, known as the miner’s trail. You can also make your way up Topsail Bluff, which I did on a very hot day. The views were worth it but take some water or drive summit place and enjoy Conception Bay views from there. You can continue to miner’s trial as part of the Long Shore Path that will take you to Portugal Cove ferry. The next section of trail would be Piccos Ridge.

My little nephew Noah loves pirates and exploring places unknown. Also, his little brother enjoys throwing rocks into the water and making a splash. His father and I, took the kids to the beach to find what we called a secret cave. We walked along the beach and X clearly marked the spot in the beginning.

A nice walk along the shores with Bell Island across the way for just over 1 KM to the cave.

Noah was quite the climber and went up and down a few times. We walked back the section of the East Coast Trail and the kids spent some time on the beach.

It was a wonderful experience to enjoy the Cave at Topsail Beach. Lots to discover in Newfoundland and Labrador.
