Amherst Shore Provincial Park

Amherst Shore Provincial Park lies on the gentle shores of the Northumberland Strait.
It makes an ideal spot to experience the warmth and charms of Nova Scotia’s Sunrise Trail.
At low tide, the waters here often recede over 1.6 km (1 mile), exposing extensive tidal
flats to exploration and the warming of the sun. When the waters return, the beaches
of the Northumberland Strait offer the warmest saltwater swimming in Nova Scotia
– for that matter north of the Carolinas! Hikers can follow nature trails that thread
through coastal woods out to tidal inlets. Picnickers, swimmers, campers and hikers
will all enjoy the picture-postcard views to be found throughout the park.
