Summer is HERE, the perfect time to visit our Nova Scotia Beaches! We’ve created a series of posts on one of the best summer adventures, THE BEACH! Read on for information on Crescent Beach in LaHave, or click on the links below to find more amazing Nova Scotia Beaches.
Crescent Beach is a beautiful 2 km stretch of beach in LaHave, Nova Scotia. This crescent shaped strip connects the mainland to the LaHave Islands. This beach is very well kept, in no small part due to the Friends of Crescent Beach who organize cleanups, monitor the health of wildlife and algae in the area and even replant the rose bushes that are so often talked about at Crescent Beach (imagine the scent of roses and fresh seawater together. It is divine).
Crescent beach is one of the only beaches in Canada that you can still drive on. It is close to Rissers Beach and Provincial park where you can camp or hike the trails. Nearby, you will find clamming and kayaking opportunities and birdwatching. This spot has seen eagles, gulls, and plovers!
You can access this beach right off of the lighthouse route, just look for the signs. Dogs are permitted, but they must be on-leash.
