When the sun is shining, the sky is blue and the white sand beach stretches out in front of you towards the sea in one unending display of pure pristine sand, it is so tempting to take some time for yourself and to stroll along the beach, leaving your footprints in the sand behind you. This perfect white sand can be found on Crescent Beach in Lockeport, a town on Highway 3 along the Lighthouse Route in Nova Scotia.
Crescent Beach is just that, shaped like a crescent. It is about two kilometres long and is known for its gorgeous white sand and also for its windsurfing as the wind here is perfect to practice that sport. It is also well known for its sand dunes, which separates this beach from the tidal flats and the salt marsh of nearby Dublin Bay. There is also a wooden fence erected between the Bay and the beach.
Automobiles are allowed on the beach, which is actually quite a rare allowance on any beach, especially one that is as nice and natural as this one. Allowing cars to drive on the sand could in fact ruin it and then this beach would no longer be known for gorgeous views such as this one.
