Description & Services
At low tide you can walk out to the lighthouse.  
The Sandy Point Lighthouse Beach is a tidal beach that grows in size as the tide ebbs.  
At low tide a glistening stretch of golden sand links the Sandy Point Lighthouse to the shoreline. The shallow waters, rock pools and proximity to the Sandy Point Community Centre (for snacks and washrooms) makes this a very popular beach with local families.  
Our sons, love it there – it is always their first choice.  
For them there are sand castles to build, seashells, starfish and other treasures to be found.  
And the fact that it is an 8-minute drive from the center of Shelburne makes it very convenient.
