Rissers Beach, More Than A Beautiful Beach

Rissers Beach: A Park, Campground & Hiking Trail

Rissers Beach Provincial Park is about a 20 minute drive from the motel in Petite Riviere, Lunenburg County. It’s a beach, campground, picnic park and hiking destination on beautiful Green Bay. It makes a great day trip for your family and the park and surrounding area offers a variety of recreational activities.

If you are with a group of sun worshipers, the supervised, white sand beach will no doubt sedate their desire for that perfect tan. You will be amazed at the colour and clarity of the water. If the sand and sun are not your thing, then the beautifully groomed hiking trails, that include some amazing boardwalks along the salt marsh, will most certainly capture your interest. And don’t forget your camera, there are some real photo opportunities along the trail, beautiful seascapes and depending on the season and equipment you have, a chance to shoot some interesting shore birds, like blue herons or the occasional whooping crane or bald eagle.

And after a day in the sun, what better way to relax and share a story or two than a picnic along the beach. And if you didn’t pack a picnic, there’s a canteen on site and opportunities to grab a sandwich and other supplies in Petite Riviere and nearby Green Bay.

A tour of the area should be included in your day trip itinerary. There are local craft shops, a winery and other amazing beaches (including Green Bay Beach and Crescent Beach) all within a short drive of Rissers. The canteen at Green Bay is a must stop for an ice cream cone or homemade lobster sandwich. And the views and hospitality? Well, let’s just say, you won’t be disappointed where ever you stop in this picturesque region of Nova Scotia.
