Crystal Crescent Beach

Crystal Crescent Beach


I remember the moment I first laid eyes on Crystal Crescent Beach. I literally gasped.

It was so beautiful it took my breath away. This is Nova Scotia!

Crystal Crescent Beach Provincial Park is situated in Sambro Creek, South of Halifax. This beautiful park has 3 white-sand crescent beaches to enjoy with boardwalks to the first 2 beaches and 2 vault-toilet facilities. 


The water is turquoise. The sand is white. The water is warm. The sky is blue. It’s the perfect place to spend the day at the beach!


How to Get There

Crystal Crescent Beach is located on Rte 349, 29 km south of Halifax. My GPS in the car couldn’t locate Crystal Crescent Beach, but it did find Sambro Creek. Otherwise, use Google Maps for directions.

It is about a 1.5 hour drive from Kentville to Crystal Crescent Beach. Take Highway 102 towards Halifax (Bi Hi) and then Exit 1D towards Sambro Creek.

You will drive on twisty, windy roads and doubt yourself several times, but keep going!

Tucked away, down at the end of the world, is the most beautiful beach, ever!


I always find the beach there a bit windy, so take a light sweater, just in case. And, bring your picnic lunch. There is a little convenience store nearby, but nothing at the beach.

Treat yourself to a relaxing day trip and spend the day at Crystal Crescent Beach!
