Surf – Mavillette Beach

Daily Image - 13 March 2012 - Surf - Mavillette Beach

Mavillette beach is a large, horseshoe-shaped, sand beach with an extremely gradual slope into the sea. Coupled with the extremely high tides of the Bay of Fundy it means that when the tide’s out there’s many acres of pure sand to walk on or play with, and when the tide’s in all that warm sand transfers all that heat to the usually cold water, making wading and swimming a delight. Mavillette beach is usually quite calm, but when the wind starts to blow up the Bay, the swells build up and some nice surf forms.

Mavillette beach is a protected Provincial Park located at the entrance to Saint Mary’s Bay, near the tiny fishing village of Cape Saint Mary’s, in Clare, Digby County, Nova Scotia.
