Parrsboro, Nova Scotia

The Town of Parrsboro

Located along the coast of the Bay of Fundy, the Town of Parrsboro is the perfect place to stay and experience the world’s highest tides and enjoy authentic Nova Scotia hospitality.

The lighthouse view overlooking the harbour is one of the best in the province and showcases both the horizontal and vertical extremes of the impressive Fundy tides. In addition to the view, the Parrsboro area is the most significant place on earth for harnessing tidal energy. Visitors can learn more about research underway at the nearby Fundy Ocean Research Centre for Energy (FORCE).

The Fundy tides are not the only big deal in town. Parrsboro is where Canada’s oldest dinosaurs once roamed! The Fundy Geological Museum shares the area’s rich 350 million year history of fossils, stones and dinosaur bones with exhibits, guided beach tours and the annual Nova Scotia Gem and Mineral Show. Rich in discoveries, Parrsboro has three Rock and Mineral shops, an Amethyst Boutique and Parrsboro Rock & Mineral Shop and Museum as well.

More stories of Parrsboro’s past are revealed at the beautifully-located Ottawa House By-the-Sea Museum and further along the shore in Port Greville at the Age of Sail Heritage Centre.
