Clam Harbour Beach
Build your own sand castle on Clam Harbour Beach, at the annual Sandcastle-Sculpture Contest, held each August. Why stop at castles? Participants entries are only limited by their imagination. Come join the fun in the sun - play, build, and stay for a barbeque!

Lawrencetown Beach
Crest the hill at Lawrencetown and you really know that you've arrived at the ocean, when you see this magnificent beach stretching out into the distance. A popular place for surfers year-round, the scene will take your breath away.

Martinique Beach
A visit to the longest, white sand beach in Nova Scotia will make you think you're in the Caribbean -- except most of the time, the beach is wonderfully devoid of anyone else. Enjoy the peace of a 2 mile beach walk where the only sounds you're likely to hear are the wind, the waves and the haunting cry of seagulls.

Taylors Head Beach
One of Nova Scotia's Signature Parks, beautiful Taylor's Head is a nature lover's paradise. Ten miles of headland, several secluded beaches and enough hiking trails to keep you busy for days. Just west of Sheet Harbour.
