4km stretch of beach that collects driftwood from all over the world. The unique occurrence of ocean currents and the highest tides continually deposit vast amounts of driftwood on this beach. To this day, this debris or "collection of driftwood" is known as the remains of "Kopit's Broken Dam."

Upon investigating, Kluskap found the dam of Kopit (beaver) across the Bay. Kluskap told Kopit what was happening on both sides of the dam and asked him to remove it. Kopit said that what happened to other animals was of no concern to him. Kluskap said that it was of concern to him and that he had promised to correct it.
Kluskap was said by the Mi'kmaq to be great in size and in powers and to have created natural features such as the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia.
Native Mi'kmaq legend has it that the Five Islands (Moose, Diamond, Long, Egg and Pinnacle) were created when their God Kluskap threw mud, sticks and stones at the giant beaver who dammed his medicine garden in Advocate, Nova Scotia. The mud, sticks and stones that formed the islands are said to have trapped the beaver in one of the islands and turned it into gold.
