Martinique Beach

Martinque Beach


This beautiful white sandy beach just 45min outside of Dartmouth, is our favorite beach.  Enjoy a scenic drive and discover a land of ocean just beyond the trees.  Take a walk down the 5 kilometer beach and enjoy watching the waves crash while keeping your eyes open for sand dollars. Due to the large waves, Martinique is a favorite destination for boogie boarders, surfers and water lovers.
