Nova Scotia Beaches and Seacoast

There’s nothing like a beach to bring out the kid in all of us. Even real kids will put down their smartphones and jump into the surf. Lean in to the refreshing ocean mist, and don’t worry, your sunglasses will forgive you for a bit of salt spray. And since you won’t be looking at your watch, you can use it to make a clock tower in the most epic sandcastle ever.

Nova Scotia is home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, and also offers many relaxing beach resorts. After you’re done being a connoisseur of sand you can explore the nooks and crannies of our 7,600 kilometres (13,300 km including the many islands that dot our coastline) of seacoast.

Bay of Fundy

But when you get to the Bay of Fundy, you won’t just explore it – you’ll feel it. With over 160 billion litres of water flowing in and out of the Bay of Fundy, twice a day, everyday, discover the more than 12 species of whales that call the Bay of Fundy home throughout the summer and fall months. There’s seabirds by the thousands and spectacular geological formations to explore and low tide.  

The Bay of Fundy is like nowhere else in Nova Scotia – or anywhere in the world for that matter. Home to the largest tidal range on earth, the cresting wave created by the rare tidal bore phenomenon turns the serene Shubenacadie River into a water rollercoaster.  Book a tidal bore rafting tour and experience it firsthand!
