The Eastern Shore and Northern Nova Scotia Travel Guide
Fodor's Nova Scotia & Atlantic Canada
Plan Your The Eastern Shore and Northern Nova Scotia Vacation
From the rugged Atlantic coastline to the wave-ravaged rim of the Bay of Fundy and the gentle shores of Northumberland Strait, the area east and north of Halifax is characterized by contrasts. The road toward Cape Breton meanders past thinly populated fishing villages and thick forests, whereas Northumberland Strait is bordered by attractive towns and sandy beaches. The Fundy Shore, meanwhile, scores points for dramatic scenery—expect steep cliffs harboring prehistoric fossils and intense tides that draw back to reveal the muddy sea floor.
