Martinique Beach

Beaches, Halifax County

This beautiful white sandy beach just 45min outside of Dartmouth, is our favourite 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 favourite destination for boogie boarders, surfers and water lovers.


From Dartmouth, follow Hwy 7 (Main St. ) east out of the city.
Hyw 7 will turn into Hwy 107. Stay on the 107 all the way to the end, passing Lake Echo and Porter’s Lake.
At the end of Hwy 107 turn right (east) on Hwy 7.
Follow Hwy 7 into the town of Musquodobit Harbour.
In town, across from the train museum, turn right (south) on East Petpeswick Rd.
Follow this road for approximately 12km. Watch for the Park sign on your left.
If you go too far, East Petpeswick Rd.  ends abruptly in a small cul-de-sac.
