Discover Your Perfect Beach

Build sandcastles, fly kites, take a surfing lesson, play in the waves, or just walk barefoot in the sand. We know it can be hard to live in the moment – but a beach sure helps.

Unwind in the rolling waves and breathe in the salty air along our 7,600 kilometres of seacoast. Explore, play, or simply relax on a warm sandy beach with a good book.

The Northumberland Shore offers more warm-water beaches than anywhere else in Atlantic Canada. It’s the perfect place to enjoy Nova Scotia’s comfortable climate.  Dip your toes at Melmerby Beach, where the sparkly salt water averages more than 22°C (72° F) in the summer months.

Surfing

The large storm-fed swells that roll in from the Atlantic Ocean and our long sandy beaches combine to attract surfers from around the world. Fall may be the favoured season to jump in the waves, but more and more people are chilling out while winter surfing in Nova Scotia.
