Cross country from the Green Gables Shore is the Red Sands Shore where charming, understated villages await. The jewel in this coastal crown is Victoria. Known locally as Victoria-by-the-Sea, it is, well, Victorian … and by the sea. It’s also peaceful, lovingly preserved, and popular with artsy types who come to escape the hectic pace of modern life. Browse the shops; admire the architecture; then kick back on a nearby
beach that’s washed by the warm waters of Northumberland Strait.
