Brule Point Lifestyle
The incredible lifestyle at Brule Point Ocean Properties & Golf is driven by our remarkably temperate climate, sheltered shoreline and proximity to Tatamagouche – the cultural heart of the Northumberland Shore.
With our south facing sand and pebble beach, the warmest water north of the Carolinas is right at your door step, as is our oceanfront links golf course. Brule Point is only 10 minutes to Tatamagouche with live theatre and music, boutique shopping, craft beer, restaurants and more.
Take an early stroll along the beach and experience our marvelous sunrise. Visit the Country Bread Basket for morning coffee and a fresh blueberry muffin, then head into Tatamagouche to the Farmers’ Market for some fresh produce.
Visit Main Street to pick up some Tatamagouche Brew, shop in some unique stores, get your tickets to the next performance at the Arts Centre and return home for 9 holes of afternoon golf and a swim. (Or send the family and guests to do all that, grab a book and soak up the sunshine!) Then enjoy a barbecue in your own backyard overlooking the ocean with your family and friends.
