What more is there to say? THE best beach on Nova Scotia, with the warmest water, lifeguards, a canteen, washrooms, showers, fine sand and good waves usually. There's also very few bugs and a provincial campground where you can camp practically right on the beach.

Beautiful beach, warm water. very nice camp sites. It's quiet at night, unlike some other campgrounds. Clean bathrooms.

We love this beach. The beach is large enough that you have plenty of space to spread out. My kids love it because there is usually less seaweed and the water is warmer. Definately a family favorite.
