Breath Deeply. You've Arrived.

Welcome to Nova Scotia’s best-kept secret. Incredible beaches, serene forest trails, welcoming historic villages and our rich history are yours to explore.

Pristine Coastline

Our undisturbed coastline has many variations, from rugged outcroppings and white sand beaches to historic harbours and pebbled shoreline trails.

There’s tranquility on our sweeping sand beaches where the only crowds are flocks of seabirds hunting dinner out on Chedabucto Bay.

Serene Forest, Abundant Fauna

Our lakes, streams and rivers teem with trout and bass. The forests are home to bear, deer and a vast array of smaller wildlife. The undisturbed flora is unique to the region.

Communities with Character

The shiretown of Guysborough is one of the most picturesque communities in the province, home to a perfect harbour. At our northeastern tip sits Canso, a community steeped in 400-years of history. Canso is home to the popular summer songwriters’ festival, the Stan Rogers Folk Festival. Further inland are the magnificent rolling hills and scenic views of Country Harbour. Scattered along the rural routes that connect these communities are historical fishing, forestry and mining villages, each with its own unique story to tell.

Local accommodations range from charming country inns to scenic coastal campgrounds and most everything in between.
