This was our 2nd visit to this location. it is a beautiful location. That said, there is hardly any sand. So come to watch the surfers, come to enjoy waves, but don't come expecting to play or lay in the sand.

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

Lawrencetown Beach is a generally a busy place to take some time out at the beach, for visitors and locals alike. The beach is not the warmest water all the time, but it is right on the Atlantic Ocean. There are change rooms and parking.
