We visited the beach at high tide and at low tide. It was truly amazing to see the difference. It was peaceful and quite when we went. It is a little tricky going down to the beach but once there it is beautiful.

The museum keeper happily guided us along a personal tour of the museum, like a class in paleontology. Then, after we had a great time hunting for fossils down at the beach, he helped identify and explain some of our finds: jumbled tracks of burrowing...More

The museum, located at the left of the parking spot, contains loads of fossiles, gathered on the nearby beach. The collector, who gathered these items during the past 17 years, gave us a tour in the museum, and told us lots of interesting historic facts...More

After visiting Joggins and their 300,000,000 year old fossils, I heard about Blue Beach in Avonport. The beach itself was beautiful and fossils were available everywhere. Apparently Blue Beach fossils pre-date Joggins by 40,000,000 Years! The guide at the museum, Chris, gave us the tour...More

The walk is pretty far. I don't remember the exact length. It's hilly and the part of the end is a bit steep. Overall, I wouldn't recommend the walk for anyone who has difficulty walking.
