For the experienced paddler Round Bay Beach makes a good access to paddle along the coast stopping on Grey Island for a break and to explore. From Grey Island your next stop can be McNutt’s Island at the government wharf, here you can tent overnight or have lunch and paddle on up the Shelburne Harbour and exit at the Shelburne Harbour Yacht Club.

This makes a good full days paddle. Keep in mind the tide and wind conditions for this trip.
