Dominion Beach is located in Cape Breton County
Dominion Beach was one of the original 15 beaches first supervised by the Nova Scotia Beach Supervision Program in 1973. Current Assistant Director, Troy MacArthur, first began his lifeguarding career at Dominion as a junior lifeguard in 1987.
Dominion's facilities include a large change house that includes showers, flush toilets, and abundant parking in two large parking lots.
Dominion is a relatively safe beach with a gentle sloping sand bottom. It can experience large surf conditions when the wind is blowing from the Northeast. The rough surf conditions develop strong currents which can make swimming dangerous.The supervised swimming area is marked by two red and yellow flags approximately 200m apart. The lifeguards advise patrons to use the boardwalks and not enter the sand dunes and to always swim in the supervised area. On days with offshore winds lifeguards ask that no inflatables or floatation devices be used.
Dominion Beach Beach is located within the town of Dominion.
