Bayfield Beach is located in Antigonish County
In conjunction with the Municipality of the County of Antigonish, supervision began in 1996. Staff from both Pomquet and Bayfield attend the annual NSLS training camp.
Change-houses, toilets, and parking are available. Across the road from the beach is a small park where you can have a picnic.
The supervised swimming area is marked by red and yellow flags on either side of the beach and red buoys in the water. It is generally about 200 metres in width, but can vary depending on beach conditions.
