Some Common Questions About Lawrencetown Beach

Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a summary of some of the kinds of questions we receive throughout the year.

Are dogs allowed on the beach?

Yes, dogs are allowed on the beach, as long as they are on a leash, and you pick up their 'bits'.

Do you offer, and how much, are surfing lessons?

Unfortunately, we do not offer surfing lessons from our website. You'll have to Google in order to find some of the local vendors.

Are campfires allowed on the beach?

No, campfires on not allowed either Stoney, or Lawrencetown Beach.

When does the beach close?

I have only ever seen the beach actually closed during hurricanes. While the pavilion is only open during the summer months, the parking lots are accessible 24/7. There is always, day or night, 365 days a year, someone here enjoying the beauty of the ocean.

Are weddings, bar-b-ques, events, etc. allowed on the beach?

We don't know the answer to this one. For these types of things, we recommend you contact Parks Nova Scotia. Their contact info can be found here.

When are the lifeguards on duty?

You can find the lifeguard schedule here.

Is there camping at the beach?

No, there is no camping allowed at the beach. The closest campground is only about 10-km away though - it is the Porters' Lake Provincial Park. You can find it easily on the Map to Lawrencetown Beach by dragging it down just a bit. The park is off the Crowell Road on the right hand side of the map.
