Conrad's is a gorgeous beach, but you have to park far away. So this beach wouldn't be accessible to anyone that couldn't walk very far. There are no amenities on this beach other than a garbage can at the entrance. It would be best to...More

Conrad's beach has a lot of history behind it. From the protected grounds of the piping plover to stories of Rum caches along the beach . Locals will tell you the stories buried in the sand

Natural and untouched. This is a phenomenal beach for peace and solitude or to take the family for the day!

Three times this year I have attempted to take visiting birders to this beach, but because there was no parking we had to back up and leave.

This is my favorite beach in the Halifax area. Sandy (unlike Lawrencetown), gentle waves, nice rocky area with a more secluded sandy beach on the other side. It can get quite busy during the summer, but you never feel like you are on top of...More

This is one of nicer beaches and although there is not a lot of parking except on the road it is nice to stop have a picnic and watch the water.
