Reopened and refreshed in Nov. 2012, White Point Beach Resort is a year-round, oceanfront beach vacation destination centrally located on Nova Scotia's South Shore, within the UNESCO Southwest Nova Biosphere Reserve. Named one of the top 10 coastal destinations in the world by National Geographic Traveler in October 2010, White Point features a new main lodge - inspired, crafted and created by Nova Scotia - and refreshed cottages and guest rooms. Choose from oceanfront and lakeside cottages, guest rooms and vacation homes; exciting programs for all ages; and event and conference facilities.
Surrounded by water, White Point boasts an extensive variety of recreation facilities and programs. The 1km sandy beach is perfect for relaxing, strolling and enjoying the soft white sand and pounding surf. The rolling waves of the Atlantic are perfect for playing in with a boogie board or even surfing - yes, lessons are available! While the beach is considered a main attraction, the freshwater lake boasting a boathouse with canoes and paddleboats is certainly enjoyed by all. Take a paddle around the islands and even go for a swim. Kayaks and surfing equipment are also available from the boathouse.
The indoor heated pool, hot tub and sauna, outdoor pool, tennis courts, beach volleyball area and outdoor shuffleboard are all very popular with our guests and visitors. There are also nature trails, a CPGA Donald J. Ross designed 9-hole golf course (golf lessons available), day spa, fitness room, recreation centre, games room, children's playground, and a variety of complimentary recreation programs and activities for all ages. Nightly we gather by the beachside bonfire to roast marshmallows and even mussel bakes, occasionally. Theme weekends from Sept. - June offer unique experiences for all. Daily schedules of fun are offered with our complements in July and August.
White Point is centrally located on Nova Scotia's South Shore, just 90 minutes from historic Halifax, with a variety of day trips at our doorstep including the UNESCO World Heritage Site Lunenburg, Kejimkujik National Park and Seaside, whale watching on the Bay of Fundy, and the vineyards of the Annapolis Valley to name a few.

White Point is a proud member of Taste of Nova Scotia and celebrates the bounty of our harvests in our menus. While our dinner buffets have become famous, featuring many local dishes and favourites, the menu in the Elliot's Dining Room will definitely whet your appetite. The wine menu also features the most extensive Nova Scotia wine list in the province. Dining at White Point is a must as you enjoy the stunning views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
Of course, we must mention the bunnies at White Point. Guests of all ages are delighted to be greeted by our resident bunnies who only ask that you grab your bag of bunny food (complimentary) from the front desk and feed them!
