Crystal Crescent Beach Provincial Park, Sambro

4.8
#3 of 8 in Beaches in Halifax Region
Crystal Crescent Beach Provincial Park boasts three white sand beaches with boardwalks--the second being dog-friendly and the third a nudist beach. Take your shoes off and let the soft sand gently caress your feet as you walk along one of the beaches. The water is too cold for swimming, even in the summer months, but you can still wade barefoot through the shoal. Note that restroom facilities are scarce and there are no food stands at the beach, so bring your own snacks and water. If you want to explore the coastal nature, go bird-watching, or have a go at rock climbing, look for the entrance to a hiking trail that loops along the coastline.

    We have read this tip at Trivago and were surprised. Apart from the very cold water, this is a beautiful sandy beach. The last sign (shield) leads to a gravel road (approx. 1, 5km). The beach has several sections. We have just left adhered where also equal to parking (gravel) were. There are no toilets on the beach, only two small cabins to change. There is also a Lake was bathed on the beach. There was a constant coming and going. Beach of nature surrounded by nature with large stones. As already written are several stretches of beach that are partially accessible via wooden walkways and stairs. The water is clear (in July very cold) and some rocks near the shore. The sand is very fine grained, comparable with quartz sand.
