Welcome To Hall Beach

Hall Beach, or Sanirajak (“one that is along the coast” in Inuktitut) is located on the shore of Foxe Basin, a narrow strait across from Baffin Island on the north eastern tip of the Melville Peninsula in the Qikiqtani (Baffin) Region of Nunavut.

Hall Beach is a place with a rich history and culture. Hall Beach is also a great destination for Arctic tourism and recreation. You will see walruses, seals, waterfowl and other Arctic wildlife. If you are a sportsman, Arctic Char fishing is absolutely superb in Hall Beach.

Since the community is located above the Arctic Circle, during the year, it experiences the phenomenon known as Arctic Day and Arctic Night. During the months of July and August, the sun continuously and tirelessly circles above the horizon, not setting for about two months. This is the best time of the year for some great fishing and hunting. During the months of December and January, the region experiences the Arctic Night which again lasts about two months. Actually, the area never realizes a true night as there is some residual reflection of the sun below the southern horizon. This is termed as the Arctic Light and very characteristic of these latitudes.
