Taylor Head Beach is a provincial park on the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia, Canada. It is located 11 km (6.8 mi) southwest of Sheet Harbour, near the community of Spry Bay.[1]

The park has 1 km (0.62 mi) of sandy beach and 22 km (14 mi) of scenic hiking trails, varying in length and difficulty. The trails are rugged.[1] There are also many geological features and natural habitats within the park.[1] Taylor Head Beach is one of the few places in Nova Scotia that has sand volcanoes.[2] Hunting is forbidden inside the park borders. Two or three sailors drowned off the coast of Taylor Head and are buried there. There is a sign at their place of burial.
