Nice beach but there are better in NS

A short walk on a forested trail leads you to Blue Beach which is covered in shale-type rocks perfect for skimming. You may also find fossils although our group did not see any while we were there.

A fall walk at low tide!
Oct. 2019
A nice Sunday afternoon walk looking at fossils galore, after the fall hurricane lots of disturbance to the shoreline , a low tide exposed a lot of beach to walk over, many young families with children exploring what nature has to offer.Be careful when walking under the overhang , loose soil/rocks do fall from above!

Loved our tour!
Aug. 2018 • Family
We loved our guided tour. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and we learned so much. The younger kids were listened and enjoyed learning. Once we went down to the beach we all scattered in search of fossil treasures. Our guide was amazing at helping us to find and identify fossils we otherwise would not see.

Be sure to go at low tide
Sep. 2018 • Couples
We stopped here early in the morning on a Monday to look for fossils! We found a couple, and it was nice to have the beach to ourselves for a while. A few fishermen came down towards the end of our time there. The fossils aren't very obvious, but we did find a few small ones we could take with us, and one larger we couldn't.

Nova Scotia at her finest
Sep. 2018 • Solo
Truly a hidden gem. I visited and watched the tide go out. Got to walk around where just moments earlier there was tide.
You could spend hours seeing incredible fossils of plant life embedded forever in the rocks.
I was fortunate enough to have the entire place to myself for a couple hours one Friday afternoon... peace unlike any other.

The path in was a lovely walk (steep at the end - so those with mobility issues might not be able to make it down to the beach itself)

There is a decrepit little outhouse along the path... ummmm .... I’d probably “hold it” if I were you. ( Bring some extra Kleenex in your pocket if you are one who can’t!)

Neat spot at low tofe
Aug. 2018
Decided to try and explore this beach. You for sure can only visit it at low tide. There are supposed to be lots of fossils in the rocks but we were not so successful finding any. If the museum was open like
It was Supposed to be we might have had better luck with a guide. Still a neat place to see if you have the time.

Interesting Spot!
Jul. 2018 • Family
This is a great little beach for those who are particularly interested in rocks and nature. We went when the tide was out and it was perfect for exploring for rocky treasures. There is a well-beaten path from the parking area down to the beach and we found it to be an easy walk. We had the whole beach to ourselves so it was very peaceful and quiet. We will definitely return to explore again another day.

A Nice Place to see the Tides
Sep. 2017 • Family
We visited the beach at high tide and at low tide. It was truly amazing to see the difference. It was peaceful and quite when we went. It is a little tricky going down to the beach but once there it is beautiful.

Fossils and fish with a view
Oct. 2016 • Friends
I recently went to this beach, although it was offseason. The Fossil museum was closed and the tide was in, so I did not get the full experience. Even with those small disappointments I still found an amazing fossil (see photo) and the view was wonderful. If you like to fish the local fisherman were quite happy as they were catching sea bass, right from the small remaining bit of rocky beach left at high tide.
