Stroll a pearly white beach, eat red hot lobster, sit by a crackling fire. Go on a take-your-breath-away hike, sip on a heady ale from our micro-breweries, Hell Bay or Boxing Rock, or wet your whistle on an Ironworks perfectly distilled spirit. There’s something in the air here. You can taste it as surely as fresh salt spray on your lips. Outdoor experiences & fine dining, lighthouses & wilderness, culture & history – come see us on the South Shore.
Picturesque Mahone Bay on Nova Scotia's South Shore is home to artisan shops, locally inspired restaurants, and one of the most photographed spots in the province - Mahone Bay's Three Churches.
One of the most photographed views of Mahone Bay is of the Three Churches that overlook Mahone Bay on the main street. Depending on the time of year, you may see three, four, or five church steeples in your photo.
Be sure to take a stroll along the Pumpkin Path during the Great Scarecrow Festival & Antique Fair in Mahone Bay.
Be sure to visit Mahone Bay the first weekend in October each year for the Annual Great Scarecrow Festival & Antique Fair. Scarecrows of Hollywood actors and actresses, famous musicians, politicans and even British royalty are a sight to behold.
