Beach walk with kids

This is a very nice sandy beach. We took our two little boys here and they loved climbing the sand dunes.

This is a beautiful place to go to view the Atlantic Ocean. However there are sections of the boardwalk that have been damaged by weather and have not been repaird. It is dangerous walking to go all the way around so I suggest just going half way and then back to the beginning.

I had my first visit to Tor Bay provincial park in July with friends. It is a beautiful sandy beach. It is a lovely spot to spend the day with a picnic. The board walks through the woods to beach are beautiful. I can't wait to visit again.

We enjoyed walking through this park. The board walk was well laid and must have taken a lot of work to lay down. The view of the ocean was breath taking.

Beautiful sandy beach with boardwalk to get one over the dunes. Clean outhouse washroom and changing cabins. Be warned that you must arrive with all food and beverages as little nearby. Only one very tiny shop in Larry's River for soft drinks and chips. No gas station in the area either, so stock up in Guysborough which is a pretty... More

Wide boardwalks leading to stunning rocky and sandy beaches. A perfect oasis of calm away from the towns.

The rugged coast line and openness of the Atlantic Ocean gives rise to some spectacular wave activity. Certainly recommend this as a stopping point on a tour of Nova Scotia

Tor Bay Beach Provincial Park is off the beaten track but very pretty. I never met a beach I did not enjoy and this one is a series of crescents with interesting tidal pools at low tide. It was a cool and over cast day so swimming was not on the agenda but we enjoyed our walk and the views... More

Beach access but no life guards and a strong undertow. Long walk on wooden board walk to beach and at the end you have to walk across the dune. Picnic tables on boardwalk. Some sand and lots of rocks.
