Fodor's Review

One of Nova Scotia's most popular beaches, Melmerby has a boardwalk and some of the warmest water north of the Carolinas. Beaches straddle both the inner and outer edges of this horseshoe of land, the inner portion a glorious stretch of white sand. Swimming is safe here unless winds are high, when strong currents develop. The supervised area (in July and August) is clearly marked. Beware of poison ivy in the sand dunes and, between mid-July and early August, jellyfish

in the water. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets. Best for: swimming.
