Its size brings a number of businesses, services, a school and accommodations. There is variety in Roberts Arm and nearly each street seems to have its own personality. Streets weave and intersect each other in the centre of town, and stretch out to hug both the bay and Crescent Lake.

Crescent Lake, next to Roberts Arm, is a visitor draw. It suits varied water recreation, has a lovely trail along it and is reputed to be the home of a Loch Ness type creature affectionately known as Cressie. Reported sightings have persisted over the years, and it has been the topic of articles a TV show episode and a small Facebook Group dedicated to the topic.

History Tidbit: Roberts Arm was originally known as Rabbits Arm, due to the large number of hares in the area.
