Always enjoy seeing the enthusiasts on the water, with either their parasails or boards. Breeze is very good and the participants can really scoot along.

A beautiful place to watch the sunset. Shallow beach for children, fantastic place to climb on your board and hold on. Some days are slow but when the wind is up, it's something else.

Came here to watch the sun down two nights in a row it was so beautiful! Looks like a great spot to launch a kayak or kite surf. Also note, the signage reads Haulover, not Canadian hole.

We stopped here to see the sunset over the sound. Really great view. There were many people kite surfing, not for me but looked like a lot of fun.

a legendary spot for windsurfing and kiteboarding, parking area with toilets. Whether watching or sailing this spot is buzzing on a windy day.

You can rent different water sports items from Ocean Atlantic Rentals in Avon, right up the road. I believe single kayaks rent for the week starting at $69.
