Union's pretty white sand beaches are protected by reefs, making them ideal for swimming. Most beaches are very quiet with no bars or restaurants nearby.

Chatham Bay Beach is one of the most popular and is accessed either by boat or a fairly steep forest trail. Big Sands Beach at Belmont Bay has a hotel and restaurant located nearby, and the sweeping Richmond Bay Beach is excellent for bathing. Bloody Bay has a couple of very isolated white sand beaches with access via boat or forest trail.

Other beaches include Anchorage, Ablo, Belmont and Campbell.
