Swimming & Beaches
Locals enjoy Freda’s Beach! Listen to the splashing of waves or hear the children laughing as they play in the shallow water. Timed right, this is a perfect place to watch the yacht races. Located in Chester.
Bask on one of 10 beaches in the Hubbards/Aspotogan region, Queensland Provincial Beach Park is a supervised beach, has change rooms, toilets, and a chip wagon during the summer months.
Picnic at Whynacht’s Beach which is positioned in such a way that during the winter months, it loses all of its sand, but it returns again in the spring. This phenomenon is caused by the waves crashing straight-on to the shore. It is one of only two beaches in all of North America where this occurs—the other being in Virginia, U.S.A. Located on Hwy 3 in Black Point.
Crescent Beach. Connecting the LaHave Islands to the mainland, Crescent Beach provides a popular destination for tourists throughout the summer. Located in the Lunenburg Region.
Hirtle’s Beach. Here you will find more than three kilometers of white sand, rolling surf, fresh sea air, drumlin cliffs, and breathtaking views. Located in the Lunenburg Region.
Sand Dollar Beach in Rose Bay offers a spectacular opportunity for strolling along the shoreline and collecting sand dollars and other sea treasures. Located in the Lunenburg Region.
The Lido is a pool of treated ocean water walled off from the back harbour. It is a favorite for local families and is the first experience with swimming lessons many children from Chester have.
