East River, Nova Scotia

The most westerly point in the Ten Beaches area, East River sits on the eastern side of Mahone Bay.

Settled around the turn of the 19th century, East River was known for some farming, but mostly fishing. Today, East River is home to one of the region's largest employers, Louisiana Pacific, which makes wood siding products, but has an excellent reputation for recycling and environmental practices.

East River can be accessed off Exit 7, by turning left on Highway 3, and then right on Highway 329. It is the first community you come to when traveling east on the Aspotogan Peninsula. Just a short distance before turning on to the peninsula, you can stop at a pretty little waterfront picnic park along Highway 3.

Once on the peninsula, you will come to the first of our Ten Beaches, the East River Beach, as you take your first sharp left bend on highway. There is plenty of parking on a side road that runs parallel with the ocean. East River Beach is growing in popularity, but still remains a peaceful spot where you can enjoy plenty of wide open space and fresh ocean air.
