Tips from locals
Beautiful beach with a long wooden boardwalk around it. Great for walks as well as relaxing. Small walk from parking to the actual beach.
Less than 10 minutes away, you get beautiful sandy beaches and walking along boardwalks and trails
Hidden treasure! Ocean front with 3 white-sand beaches, boardwalks & hiking trail. Approximately 40 minute drive.
Long white-sand beach. The roar and rumble of the ocean. Salt spray. Vast sky. I mean, yes, its the Atlantic ocean so it is challengingly cold, but... it is still one hell of a relaxing and beautiful beach.

“Take a boat ride out from Eastern Passage and walk around this former first line of defense in the middle of the harbour. The cannons are still there, as well as some old houses and bunkers from the fort.”
