Crystal Crescent Beach Provincial Park Reviews & Ratings
Amazing beach and great hiking trail. There is a small trail for easily walking. The whole trail is 11km and it would be with difficult level of hiking as you have to be able to climb and walk through bushes. Amazing views though.
Beautiful beach with soft sand. A few small rocks when walking into the water but other than that it's all sand. Water is clear and you can see right to the bottom. Some slight waves along the shore. Ample parking and a short walk from parking lot to boardwalk taking you to the beach.
One of our favourites beaches that is only 30 minutes from the city. What lacks in water temperature the beach itself makes up for. Very clean, an easy walk from the parking lot and lots of space to have a private spot. Good washrooms at the end of the parking lot too. No other facilities so pack snacks!
A bit of drive from Halifax but well worth it as it has a gorgeous beach. You can go for an easy walk on the boardwalk or if you are more adventurous you can head off on one of the paths that are not maintained. The beach gets very busy in the summer especially on the weekends so you may want to head off early. Good idea to bring snacks and water.
Crystal Crescent is a great beach! There is a beach section for the family, but there is also a nude section about a km further from the family section. People are respectful and its quite peaceful! There is a hiking trail to the left of the parking lot. Bring some good shoes or hiking boots, you’ll be walking across the large rocks, and in and out of the woods and brush! Have fun!
