Looking straight across the harbour is the Sandy Point Lighthouse, this is the narrowest place in Shelburne Harbour.
This site has good parking and access although a bit secluded. This makes a good access to paddle to or from McNutt’s Island, making a day trip or overnight. Also from here you can paddle in Shelburne Harbour or explore Birchtown Bay, both making an adventuresome paddle.
