Description & Services
Information An incredible quiet beach that stretches for kilometers with both sandy and rocky beach areas. A gorgeous and peaceful place to relax. At low tide, sand bars with shallow water are great for playing frisbee or catch. The sun sets over the water, meaning you get the sun late into the afternoon to extend your beach day. This is one of Pictou County's finest!  
Be aware of poison ivy, especially at the beach entrances further along Big Island Road. 
No washroom facilities or garbage cans on site. Please take your trash with you.
