Nova Scotia Beaches and Seacoast
There’s nothing like a beach to bring out the kid in all of us. Even real kids will put down their smartphones and jump into the surf. Lean in to the refreshing ocean mist, and don’t worry, your sunglasses will forgive you for a bit of salt spray. And since you won’t be looking at your watch, you can use it to make a clock tower in the most epic sandcastle ever.
Nova Scotia is home to some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, and also offers many relaxing beach resorts. After you’re done being a connoisseur of sand you can explore the nooks and crannies of our 7,600 kilometres of seacoast.
But when you get to the Bay of Fundy, you won’t just explore it – you’ll feel it. Billions of litres of water rise and fall twice a day. Whales dance in the waves. There’s seabirds by the thousands and spectacular geological formations.
Fundy is like nowhere else in Nova Scotia – or anywhere for that matter. Home to the largest tidal range on earth, the cresting wave created by the rare tidal bore phenomenon turns the serene Shubenacadie River into a water rollercoaster.
