“Carribean Paradise in the Atlantic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is not only my favorite but my family & friends too as well as many others who live in the area from Cowie Hill-East/West Pennant and few tourists,people from downtown in the Summer.We try to keep it a secret if we could as it's not as popular as the other beaches in/outer areas of the HRM(Halifax Regional Municipality) the white sandy beach,one of 3 and (yes,1 is a nude beach)dunes greet you as you drive in and walk down the short board walk. The water is usually the coldest out of the most popular beaches but,if were given another record breaking hot Summer then this will change to warmer temps. The best thing about here,it's not as 1/2 crowded as the others and that's a good thing! I look forward to Summer of 2013 to spend time with my new Granddaughter there and one more thing before I end this,"Make sure to bring food/drink with you as there is no food trucks present but there is a NSLC/Mishoo's Restaurant&Take out and convenience store all in one". I hope you take the time to check out this beautiful white sand beach anytime of the year,you will not be disappointed!!!

“Awesome beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Was there on a beautiful sunny November day. The gate was closed and we had to walk but well worth the walk. I certainly would love to go back when it was opened.

“beautiful fresh adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

GREAT view, it's an awesome bike ride from Halifax (about 2 hours). Great hiking trail over large boulders all along the beach. Beautiful for the day, close to town, a great variety of beach, rock, forest, fresh air!

“Best Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

One of the largest and most beautiful beaches in HRM. Close to the only nudest beaches, yet far enough away to keep privacy ensured. A bit far out of town, plan for a full day.
