The Martinique Beach and Bird Sanctuary

You don't need to go to the Carribbean to discover sandy beaches. At the end of the East Petpeswick Road, visitors will be amazed to find the longest white sandy beach in Nova Scotia. Martinique Beach with its teeming wildlife has been designated a wildbird sanctuary.

Depending on the season, visitors can expect to see not just the famous Canada goose but a wide variety of birds clustered around the area on route to the southern climes. On the shore at any time of the year there aren't just birds; you may sometimes see seals playing in the waves.

An amazing number of sandpipers may lead the way along the shore to the end of the beach from where you have agreat view.

For the ambitious, it is almost a 2 hour walk to reach the end of Martinique Beach! Beaches like this always invite swimmers and surfers in the summer, but have you ever seen surfing in winter? We have!
