We made a quick stop to this beach during a windy rainy morning. White sand and beautiful view. Even saw a Northern Gannet! If you are staying at a near by hotel I recommend a visit.

Probably the most beautiful beach in Nova Scotia! However it is located in a remote area of NS, near Port Mouton in Queens County. There is very little parking for visitors, and the "locals" are often inconvenienced by disrespectful visitors to the area (parking on...More

This is a little gem of a location. It is out of the way but you can get a good walk in. Wild life all over the place and good for swimming as well.
