Lots of little trails and stairs down to the beach. Rock formations on the beach are very interesting and plenty of climbing and exploration available.

Came here today for a quick stop. I had stopped here years ago, and it still remains the same. Very impressive story behind it, beautiful landscape with very nice photo opportunities. I highly recommend anyone stopping by here. Free entry.

Nova Scotia has a number of these day use picnic parks and each is interesting and unique. Smuggler's Cove has the picnic grounds and a wonderful view out over St. Mary's Bay, but has the added feature of a cave across a small beach that used to be used for rum smuggling during prohibition. Great fun to visit, even off season just for the scenery!

Bring a picnic lunch, look over the bay or walk down to the cave. Great experience to walk down the stairs to the small beach. Check out Smuggler's cave where the Rum Runners used to hide their stash.

Try for low tide so you can get down on the beach. Beautiful spot and informative boards to learn of the history of the area. Perfect place for little ones to explore. Access is mostly stairs. Bathrooms available near parking lot. Short walk around the cliff edge. Picnic tables available.
