Crescent Beach is beautiful. We strolled barefoot in the fine white sand, with a warm summer breeze on our faces, the waves of the incoming tide washing up over our toes. If you’re searching for amazing beaches in Nova Scotia, this is definitely one to visit. Lockeport is often referred to as the ‘Beachtown of the North Atlantic’ due to its closeness to the shipping lanes in the Atlantic. Crescent Beach interpretative centre shows history of the town of Lockeport. The centre is also a fully equipped visitor information centre, including brochures, travel councilors, and public access computers.


Upon leaving Lockeport, we noticed this scene on the side of the road. All these little boats were so cute, we had to stop to snap a photo — or two.Lockeport6886

    I also grew up in Lockeport & my family home is the blueish green house visable in the first picture just on the corner of South Street. I spent many happy hours on that beach while growning up and miss the sound of the waves lulling me to sleep at night. It is a beautiful community with many wonderful kind hearted people!

      Very cool!

      Nova Scotia is wonderful with regards to scenery and kind-hearted people. :)

      The kid inside me loves the thought of growing up here and I imagine that knowing these beaches sets the bar pretty high for beaches elsewhere.

      Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, Margery.
