Information  
 
The Hawk, Cape Sable Island, NS. The Hawk Beach is located on the most southerly tip of Nova Scotia. Walk this white sandy beach and explore the 1500 year old drowned forest; a broad area of three stumps still rooted in the original soil. Exposed at low tide.  
 
 
 
A great birding destination as it is part of the Cape Sable Important Bird Area which makes it one of the best birding areas in Nova Scotia. 
 
From the beach you can view the Cape Sable Lighthouse, the tallest lighthouse in Nova Scotia, standing at 101 feet tall. 
 
Bathroom on site during the summer months.
