Catch some waves at Nova Scotia's premiere surfing destination, Lawrencetown Beach Provincial Park, before having fun around the campfire and sleeping under the stars in a luxurious canvas bell tent.

Get suited up in a wetsuit for a private surf lesson with East Coast Surf School, owned and operated by professional surfer, Nico Manos! Then, head to Shubie Park Campground, where your dreamy, glamped campsite awaits - expertly set-up by East Coast Glamping. Shubie Park Campground is located next to Shubie Park, a 75-acre urban park with beautiful, wooded trails for walking and cycling, as well as a freshwater beach, which is supervised in the summer. Its the perfect place to enjoy nature, while being close to the heart of Halifax!

  • One-hour, private surfing lesson for 2 to 4 people with East Coast Surf School. All surfing instructors are certified lifeguards - female and French-speaking instructors are available upon request
  • 4/3 wetsuits and surfboard rental
  • 2 to 3 nights luxury camping in an East Coast Glamping (ECG) canvas bell tent, which includes beds, ambient LED lighting, bedside table, rug and camp chairs

Shubie Park Campground is located in a quiet Dartmouth neighborhood, about a 20 minute drive from Halifax Stanfield International Airport. It is also about 20 minutes to Lawrencetown Beach. After completing your one-on-one surf lesson, you're welcome to stay out in the water - practicing your new surf moves, until the beach closes at 6:00 p.m. You can also hike and cycle the Atlantic View Trail, part of the Trans Canada Trail, which runs alongside Lawrencetown Beach. Don't want to bring along your bikes? We're happy to arrange bike and hitch rental, with delivery to your campsite by Pedal And Sea Adventures.

Earned your appetite? Grab lunch at Heron's Nest Tea Room Restaurant or visit a 'hidden gem' along Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore, La Cuisine de Brigette for an authentic Acadian mid-day meal. Shubie Park Campground is conveniently located close to grocery stores and other shopping.
