Please note: If you are arriving around supper time & would like to settle in for the evening when you get here, you may want to stop for something to eat along the way. The nearby Lawrencetown Grocery store  offers pizza, chicken, salad, subs, donairs, and fish & chips (4Km west of us on the 207) There are a number of quaint local restaurants serving home-made food for breakfast or lunch or an "early" evening meal. (Heron's Nest Tea room at the other end of the beach) Or the Rose & Rooster Cafe & Bakery or LaCuisine d'Brigette (10 mins. east of us on the #207). The closest restaurant from Moonlight Beach Suites, for a later evening meal is about 15 minutes away. At the respective part of the directions, there are a couple of suggestions for restaurants for you that you will find along your way. Please note: There is also a fully equipped kitchenette in your Suite so you can also bring along some groceries to prepare your own meal. As you have seen by the pictures on our website, we have fabulous sunsets here and we always encourage people to try to get here to see the sun set over the ocean, if they can. It really is special!

From the Airport
T
ake Hwy #102 East towards Halifax/Dartmouth. Watch for the signs where the highway splits. You will want to bear off to the left onto the #118 towards Dartmouth/Halifax via Bridges & Eastern Shore. Once you’re on the #118, watch for the signs for the #107 to the Eastern Shore at Exit 13E. The signage here is a little deceiving, as it looks like both 13E & 13W go off on the same ramp, but you must go under the overpass before you take the exit ramp for 13E.

* Once you’re on the #107, just stay on this road until you get to the first set of lights. At the lights, turn left. It is still the #107, it just does a little jog here. If you’re hungry there’s a Sobey’s Grocery Store or the Vines Pasta & Grill Restaurant (up on hill beside Sobey’s,) also...a little further along (after you’ve turned left) is East West Chinese Food on your left hand side)

Continue along the #107. At the flashing yellow light, where you will be turning right onto Ross Rd. Go to the end of the Ross Rd & turn left onto #207. We are 13.5 km (less than 10 miles) from this point. You will know that you are getting closer, when you pass Lawrencetown Grocery store. You will go over the bridge at Lawrencetown River, up the hill, past the big MacDonald House where the Heron's Next Tea Room is located on the top of the hill.

Slow down as you come over this hill, as you will have a spectacular view of the beach in front of you. Moonlight Beach Suites is at the other end of the beach, on the right-hand side. There is a sign at the end of the laneway for Moonlight Beach Suites and also on the front of the house is a sign for Moonlight Beach Inn. When you come into the lane, just keep coming straight and you will come into our parking area; there is a small lighthouse on the front lawn. If you go too far, you’ll be in the ocean. (Just kidding)

From the West via New Brunswick or PEI (via the Trans Canada Highway) Also from Cape Breton (via the main highway)

Follow the main highways (100 series) to Truro, where the turn-off is onto the #102 toward Halifax. Follow the #102 until you get past the Halifax Airport. Then follow all of the instructions above “From the Airport” to get here.

From Yarmouth and Digby via #101 towards Halifax.
Take the #101 towards Halifax until you come to the split near Lr. Sackville. You will want to go towards Dartmouth on the #7. At the first set of lights that you come to on this road, at Akerley Blvd at Burnside Industrial Park, you will turn left. Keep following this road as it turns into the #107 and heads towards the Eastern Shore. Stay on the #107. Pick up the instructions above “from the Airport” at the point marked with 1 *.

Take the #103 to the #102 towards Halifax. As you come into Halifax via the #102, take the turn-off onto Joseph Howe Drive. You will turn left at the end of the exit ramp and follow the signs toward Dartmouth via MacKay Bridge. You will be bearing off to the right onto a ramp which will take you onto #2 inbound...then you will need to be in the left lane in order to turn left at the lights, onto the road which leads to the bridge. Once you have turned left at the intersection, keep your eyes on the signs for the MacKay Bridge, you will be bearing off to the right. It is a toll bridge and requires a Canadian Loonie. There are 3 different types of lanes...some for the exact change...some for a “MacPass Only” and at least one of them will be open if you require change. The attendant will make change for you, but you still have to put your own change into the drop basket.

Just keep coming straight when you come off the Bridge. You will be on the #111. Watch for the signs for Exit 7E to Cole Harbour, Eastern Shore, Woodlawn Rd. You will be exiting to the right. As you come off the ramp, you will be on the #207. We are about 20 kms (about 12.5 miles) from this point.

Go straight through the next few sets of lights and just keep coming along on the #207. It is quite a suburban, commercial area here. If you’re hungry, there are loads of restaurants along this part of your journey. We recommend the following local favorites; The Palladium, (informal, family dining, inexpensive, good food & service...watch for yellow awning on your right hand-side) or at Forest Hills Parkway, the last set of lights before you come into “vacation country” you will see a Sobey’s Grocery store on your left. Or...to try our favourite restaurant, turn right at the lights at that set of lights for Jamieson’s Irish House & Grill is located in the little strip mall on your right. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but inside there’s a lovely ambience, great food and good service. Let them know you’re staying here, and they’ll treat you extra nice!
