                      My house is located on Port Hood beach which is a safe beach because it is well protected by land. Water temperatures vary between 22 and 24 degrees C. The supervised area of Port Hood beach is normally about 200 meters wide beginning at the breakwater on the left side of the beach and extending about 100 meters to the right of the chair. The supervised swimming area is marked by red and yellow flags on either side of the beach. The water is very shallow, allowing the water to heat up early in the season and stay warm.
