Description

Some of the finest beaches in the world can be found in Nova Scotia — if you know where to go. In this book Allan Billard selects 27, from one end of the province to the other. Some of these are widely known, while others are local, out-of-the-way gems. For anyone looking to bask in the sun, head out on a surfboard, or hike alongside crashing waves, this book identifies the top options from around the province. There are key details on each beach, including information on lifeguards, terrain and seasonal availability, and cell phone reception. Allan Billard's illuminating text also explores the unique natural history of each of these beaches, offering insight into why each one is special.
