Tourist Guide: Pembroke Beach in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia

Pembroke Beach is a beach in Pembroke, Nova Scotia. Pembroke Beach is on the south shore of Pembroke Harbour at the mouth of Pembrokeshire Creek. Loyalists first settled Pembroke to New England, loyal to King George III after the 1776 American Revolution. The location of Pembroke Beach on Pembrokeshire Creek made it an ideal place for trade with Boston and other ports along the northeastern seaboard.


Pembroke Beach's Historical and Cultural Background

Pembroke became an important port in the 19th century, and Pembroke Beach was a busy place with several schooners and other vessels anchored in the harbour. Pembroke had two shipyards, one on either side of Pembrokeshire Creek.

The Wallace family operated the larger yard on the east side of Pembroke harbour. A Mr. Boudreau used the smaller yard on Pembrokeshire Creek, which bisects Pembroke into two parts. The Wallace shipyard built several small wooden sailing vessels while the Poulette family kept their vessel building traditions alive at West Pembrook through to 1875.

Pembroke Beach was also the site of Pembroke's first post office, which was in a small building on the beach. Pembrokeshire Creek, and Pembroke Beach, have been an essential part of Pembroke's history for over 250 years.
