Barn Marsh Island Beach is a 6 km sandy beach which is accessible from a set of stairs at the Cape Enrage Lighthouse. The beach extends below a 40m cliff line along the Chignecto Bay and at low tides, this sandy beach may extend out 200m. The low tide will uncover many fossils which date back to 320 million years ago. Many people will swim at the beach; however, it is unsupervised and there may be extreme currents. Visitors will not be able to walk the beach between 2 hours before high tide til 2 hour after high tide, as it is considered unsafe. It is always best to check the safest times before going to the beach with the Cape Enrage staff.
Cape Enrage Adventures offers a variety of fun activities such as: ziplining, rapelling, rock climbing, and many more group activities. These are all done by reservation only.

La plage de l’île Barn Marsh mesure 6km de distance et on peut y avoir accès par un escalier du phare du Cap Enrage. A la base d’une falaise qui mesure 40m de hauteur, la plage de sable d’une largeur de 200m borde la Baie Chignecto. Les marées basses dévoilent plusieurs fossiles qui datent 320 milliers d’années. Plusieurs personnes vont nager à la plage, mais cette plage n’est pas supervisée et il peut y avoir des courants extrêmes. Les visiteurs ne seront pas capables de marcher sur la plage, 2 heures avant la marée haute jusqu’à 2 heures après la marée haute. Avant d’aller à la plage, il vaudrait mieux demander à l’équipe du Cap Enrage quand sont les meilleures conditions pour s’aventurer sur la plage.
“Cape Enrage Adventures” offre une variété d’activités amusantes: tyrolienne, escalade, et beaucoup d'autres activités de groupe. Il faut faire une réservation pour toutes ces activités.
