Why Clarkes Beach?
Clarke’s Beach occupies an idyllic valley between North & South Rivers and beneath the highest promontory in the area, Clarke’s Hill. It is a coastal town at the base of Bay de Grave in the southwest corner of Conception Bay. Its long cobble beach, which extends for about one kilometre between the mouths of the rivers, marks the edge of a shallow, productive marine zone that attracts considerable number of shorebirds and waterfowl year-round. The high tides push saltwater up into the mouths of the two large rivers creating rich estuaries that flank the town to the north and south.
Clarke’s Beach is a thriving community that prospers economically, socially, and culturally by valuing its quiet, rural setting, history, culture, environment, and natural beauty. Clarke’s Beach strives to take advantage of its strategic location, sustain and promote its natural attributes, continue growing at a moderate pace, and retain the character that makes it so appealing.
