Beaches! — We are blessed with many silver-sand beaches in this area of the South Shore. From the smaller, lesser-known spots in West Berlin, Ragged Harbour and Eagle Head to the larger Beach Meadows Beach, and very popular Carters Beach. It’s definitely worth your time to venture out to one of these or the other beaches in our area to soak in some salt-air therapy. Before you go, you should take a light lunch with you from one of our amazing local restaurants and make a picnic out of it — Lane’s Privateer Inn in Liverpool, The Port Grocer in Port Medway, the Riverbank General Store and Cafe in Mill Village, Memories Cafe and Eatery in Liverpool, Oscar’s in Liverpool, A-1 Pizza or Liverpool Pizzeria, Dixie Lee Family Restaurant in Liverpool, White Point Beach Resort or the Quarterdeck Beachside Villas and Grill.
