Nova Scotia has a wealth of provincial parks. Some are small picnic areas, and others are large parks with a variety of facilities. Pomquet Beach is a provincial beach park north east of Antigonish (Taylor Road off Highway 104 between exits 35 and 36) in the Northumberland Shore region. This 3-km (2-mi) supervised beach (July and August) has the best example of dune succession in Nova Scotia. The beach has a gentle slope and occasional sand bars. Other park features include boardwalks, interpretive display, change house, and flush toilets. The park is available for group use. There is a Tea Room near the park, as well as monthly summer festivals.
