A great beach for a walk

Easy to park. Sandy beach and big waves, some surfers. Interesting rocks at low tide. A good place to take pictures.

Coming down the hill we could barely see the shore but once we got over the bluff the crashing waves were just what we wanted to see! A surf lesson for my son and some beach time for my daughter worked out well although they both got beat up a bit by the surf and rocks. Water is cold but... More

A lovely beach that has a lifeguard during the summer. Lots of parking and lots of surfers all year round.

Enjoyed walking along the beach for miles and also watching the surfers take advantage of the great waves. Can watch the cruise ships come into port in Halifax as well as many naval ships in the horizon. Great place to watch the sunrise and sunset.

This beach is a piece of heaven, virtually untouched or destroyed by humans. The boardwalks keep people off the delicate ecosystems that are home to an endangered species - the Piping Plover and the threatened Grey Heron. Early in the morning and later in the evening throughout the week you could actually walk the beach and not see another single... More

We had a great time on this wonderful Beach. the facilities were closed so there were not a lot of People out. the water was very calm for the area and noticed how the recent storms have pushed up a lot of stone. There are several great Hiking trails in the area with easy access from the Beach. Do enjoy.
