Direct exposure to the North Atlantic. The water is cold, mostly in the 10-14 range in summer, and around zero in winter. (Celcius). Dress well, even in the summer, rare are the days without wind. Great pounding surf on most days, gets wild during storms...More

I'm 100% biased because I grew up around the corner in Porter's Lake. I love this beach. It's large and the waves are usually quite huge. In the Halifax area I think it's the best beach for surfers.

We have been here several times but the best was a couple of weeks ago...we left behind temps of 35 degrees in Halifax to arrive at 26 degrees here...so refreshing. Lots of waves here and fun to watch the surfers

This beach is a little more wild than others,which is probably why the surfer dudes ride the waves her(yes,even in winter) It is a good place to cool down,not the best to catch some rays.

Not that far from city centre and nice to look at.Attracts lots of surfers with full body suits as water is frigid.

Not the sandy beach of many other NS sites, but what a pretty spot. Clean public bathrooms/change rooms. Busy on a sunny day, not so on a rainy one!!

Great for watching the waves when a hurricane is passing by. Cold for swimming though, and some riptides too... Popular with surfers.
