South Shore travel - the Bluenose II

South Shore travel guide: packed with maritime fun


The South Shore of Nova Scotia has miles of rugged coastline and beautiful white sandy beaches just waiting for you.

South Shore travel: things to do

  • Tour the famous Bluenose II schooner, 
  • See world-famous Peggy’s Cove lighthouse (just south of Halifax), a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an exceptional view of the Atlantic ocean and coastline (bring the camera!).
  • Follow the coast along the winding roads of the Lighthouse Route, from Halifax to Shag Harbour, passing through pretty fishing villages and greeting rocky coastline around every corner.
  • Stuff yourself silly at the Nova Scotia Lobster Crawl, during which you can visit more than 100 lobster vendors and remember why delicious lobster is your favorite seafood.
  • Tour Oak Island made famous by the TV series of the same name, where the lure of buried treasure has brought many to seek their fortune.

It doesn’t stop there:  enjoy horse and buggy rides in Lunenburg, a tour of the Iron Works distillery, hikes in Ovens national park, visit Mahone Bay Museum, Wile Carding Mill Museum, and much much more.
