Runaway Bay

© noheadimg

At Runaway Bay is an excellent white-sand beach with surprisingly few sunbathers. Runaway Bay is a very quiet backwater, but in adjacent Dickenson Bay there is enough going on. At the end of the 20th century a channel was dug for a marina project, but when hard rock was struck the project was halted. The channel cuts off direct access along the beach between the two towns though.

The inlet that was created by the channel is nowadays home to pelicans. More of these birds can be seen at the rocky outcrop of Corbinson Point at the northern side of the bay. There are some ruins of an old fort there as well. Along the land side of Runaway Bay is a salt pond, where egrets can be spotted in the evenings.

Accommodation is available in Runaway Bay. The town is 4 km north of Saint John's.
