Central Coastal Drive: Places to Explore

Victoria

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.
