"Plan B" is a beach located JUST before Lawrencetown. On your way to Lawrencetown, you will cross a bridge over a river, at the next driveway, turn right and you're in the parking lot for the beach. It's also a good bit more protected if the swell out on the point is too much. Watch out for the rip from Sandy Brook, which cuts diagonally across the take off spot from surfers left. The rip is hard on swimmers

I used to use this beach when I was first learning how to surf and wasn't comfortable with the big surf at L-Town on a heavy day. The waves are smaller and easier to handle for people just learning. I named it "Plan B" because I don't think it really has a name.
The beach features some rocks on the left side and a mouth of a river on the right side. Seaweed tends to gather on the left side of the beach and gets annoying.
A good spot to look at if Lawrencetown seems too big. I've only been able to surf it during a "swell event" involving a hurricane 300 miles off shore. At that time it was head high and beginning to get punchy
Does not have the facilities of Lawrencetown proper, lending a more roots feel to the proceedings. The rip coming out of the brook is infamous for swallowing swimmers, but is definitely manageable when aware.

Please do not surf here - I came across this site when looking for news about who the Sea King and powerboat had to rescue from Stoney this afternoon. No jokes find another place to surf.
