Beach Safety

Port Hood Beach is a safe beach as it is well protected by Port Hood Island and a rock breakwater. Water temperatures vary between 22 and 24 degrees C. The supervised area of Port Hood beach is normally about 200 meters wide, beginning right of the breakwater and extending about 100 meters to the right of the chair. The supervised swimming area is marked by red and yellow flags on either side of the beach. The water is very shallow in places due to sandbars, allowing the water to heat up early in the season and stay warm.


Port Hood Beach is located within the town of Port Hood, downhill from the Court House.
