Martinique Beach Description:
Martinique is the longest sandy beach in Nova Scotia. It's 5 km of soft, white sand. While it can be more challenging for surfers due to a strong rip current, it's still very popular with the local surfing community. The dunes at Martinique are off limits as the endangered Piping Plover nests there. After a stop for coffee and treats at Dobbit's Bakehouse or a helping of fresh fish n' chips at Harbour Fish n' Fries (both located at the head of the East Petpeswick Road), it's well worth the 12 km drive down this winding road to see this gorgeous beach that seemingly stretches on forever. There are also some beautiful weekly rental properties located right on this beach.
