We are a 3 minute drive by car to Crescent Beach in Lockeport, Nova Scotia.
The beach is considered to be one of the most attractive in Canada, and was once featured on the $50 bill.
We are a 30 minute drive from Carter's Beach.
Carters Beach is simply one of the most beautiful beaches in Nova Scotia. It is essentially three beaches in one, with three crescent areas one after another. All three are made up of soft white sand. The kids love walking the beach in search of sand dollars as much as they enjoy playing in the water.
The parking area for this beach is not large so it can appear crowded even when the beaches are not.
There are no change areas or washrooms at Carters Beach.
This beach is located at the end of South Street and usually provides a little warmer water than Crescent, especially when the sand flats are exposed to the sun during low tide in the morning.
This beach is formed by a large sand bar that extends across the mouth of the Sable River. It is over 2 miles long and has habitat for endangered Piping Plover
Rockland is a beach comber’s paradise, with numerous sheltered rock and sand beaches especially near Gooseberry Island. A great spot for photo-ops of Gull Rock Lighthouse as well.
This massive sand and pebble beach is found on the ocean side of Matthews Lake in Little Harbour. A great beach for those keen to explore or go birdwatching.
