I spend many, many days on this beach during the summer. We usually have at least one fire with all the family during the summer here. Swimming is cold but we still do it. Nice and sandy. Love it

You need to see Sandy Cove dock and harbour and also the amazing beach on the north side of the highway (a bit of a drive but keep going, it's worth it)

We visited Sandy Cove in the morning and found it to be peaceful and quietly beautiful. The beachcombing was good—yes, a good spot for sea glass—but I mostly enjoyed the simple, uncrowded nature of this beach.

Had a picnic lunch and lovely beach walk. We found quite a bit of sea glass. Just lovely but the water was really cold for Floridians.

Relax on a long quiet beach, possibly spotting porpoises or dolphins, scouring for sea glass and breathing fresh unpolluted (imagine that) air..what a treat

This was recommended to us by the front desk staff at the Digby pines and it was a wonderful place to go and have a picnic and relax for the day. We even ventured over to Long Island since we were already half way there...More

We went here partially to see where the women who marched in solidarity January 21 probably swim, and were enchanted by the setting. If the pier were either more or less in ruins, it would be perfect. Not too many people on a weekday afternoon,...More

The beach was no where near as good as maviette beach, one of my sisters found an old boot and some little girl found a dead fish, not coming back

I stopped here hoping to find a place in the area to swim. Well I found the perfect spot. Nice beach, lots of sand, warm water and nice visitors to chat with along the beach
