Looking for a fairly private quiet beach? This is it! A bit "out of the way" drive from town...but not a far distance to walk from your vehicle. Outdoor toilet facilities available. Beautiful sand bar at low tide and lots of beach to explore.

This beach has a great boardwalk to get to the beach.The water is so warm for swimming and theres also a sand bar at low tide.This beach is not used as much as some of the others in the area so it never seems to get over croweded. This is a wonderful spot to relax for an afternoon!

If it wasn't our last day visiting Pictou county and it was just a little less windy. I would have played on this gorgeous beach all day long!

..just walk the endless beach and watch the ferries cross to Prince Edward Island. Lots of ocean life to explore as you dip your feet in the salt water along the sandy shores. My favorite beach and spot to relax...
