The Area: Untouched by mass market tourism and mega-developments, the Hirtles Beach area isunspoiled. The residents of Kingsburg all share Henry David Thoreau's peaceful appreciation of nature by the ocean. The neighboring towns of Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has been called the most beautiful small town in Canada, and the Town of Mahone Bay are renowned for their art, fresh seafood, the Hirtles Beach area has been described as similar to Cape Cod in the 50’s.
A morning round of golf, an afternoon sailing or kayaking among the dozens of islands in Mahone Bay, or boogie boarding at Hirtles Beach, or hike to the end of Gaff Point, then a dinner of fresh Atlantic salmon, lobster or scallops, followed by a musical evening, makes for a perfect Lunenburg County day.
But Hirtles Beach will inevitably call you home.
