Hall Beach is located on the shore of Foxe Basin on the Melville Peninsula. Hall Beach was created when a Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line site was built in the area in 1957 to help monitor Canadian air space in the Far North. Although the DEW Line is no longer operational, there is a more technologically advanced North Warning System radar site in the community to replace it.

In the late 1950’s and early 1960’s Inuit moved from surrounding camps to work around the DEW Line site and the community was born. Hall Beach is considered one of the more traditional communities in Nunavut. The traditional name for Hall Beach is Sanirajak or “one that is along the coast”. Hall Beach is a great place to see walruses, seals, waterfowl and other arctic wildlife; fishing for arctic char is superb.
