Beautiful long beach with great waves for the beginner and experienced surfer. East Coast Surf School does rentals and lessons. Highly recommend!

So "Lawrencetown" to the locals is several things... 1. Approaching from Dartmouth proper, you reach a first beach which is nice, but more for the adventurers. DANGER - This beach is near a bridge where the salt water is affected by tides... swim there and...More
