Beautiful setting to rock or fossil hunt. Change rooms available as well as washing off station. Surfing, boogie boarding, swimming (for the brave - water is cold) Gorgeous setting. Loved hearing the breakers again. Better than a spa for relaxation. Loved it

This beach is worth a visit, plenty of free parking behind the beach, there was showers available but the toilets were both out of use. The beach has a large area mainly peebles, it Seens popular with surfers.

Had a great time but only stayed a short time as it is still chilly at this time of year. went to see the view. Has a long stretch of beach with rocks and then sand. the dunes have wooden walkways over them to protect them. Often see surfers here but not today as it was not windy enough

Hurricanes off the coast create some exciting waves for those brave enough to surf the cold North Atlantic. Really entertaining for those that like to watch. Not great access for the wheelchair, hard to get over the large dunes, but there are a number of access points, along this expansive beach.

I visited Lawrencetown Beach on New Years Day on a little solo adventure as it is located close to my in-laws home at Martinique Beach. I was surprised to see so many people bundled up and out for a walk on the beach! It was beautiful. The location is wonderful as it is close to Halifax, and close to other... More

Just a half hour from Halifax you will find this gem. Spectacular beach, great for wind surfing, surfing, kite surfing or just sun bathing. Bring your lunch and spend the day.

I love Lawrencetown... however word of advice: it's a rocky beach with strong waves and undertow... you can swim (and there are lifeguards) however it's not a place where you can go and lay on the sand in the sun so much (plus it's often cold there, even if it's sunny elsewhere!)

Just outside dartmouth. White sandy beach great for surfing. Only issue would be the water currents.

Easy to get to, great signage a panorama over looking the Atlantic. There were a few courageous surfers paddling their way out to catch the big waves. We stood in the wind for twenty minutes watching the water. pebble beaches well washed with the tide changes. don't drop any coins they fall through the rocks and are lost forever.
