Rising majestically from the shores of the Minas Basin, Blomidon Provincial Park is renowned for its spectacular views. Blomidon's 759 ha (1,875 acres) include 180 m (600 ft.) high cliffs, a variety of habitats, striking natural features, abundant wildlife -- and the world's highest tides wash its shores. These natural attractions provide excellent opportunities for camping, hiking, beachcombing, photography or just appreciating nature. Picnic at the top, or the foot, of Cape Blomidon. Stroll the red sand beach (beach access at trailhead). Note tide times, as you could be stranded until high tide recedes. Hike the all-season trails, 14 km (9 mi), through mature hardwoods, with numerous panoramic views of the Minas Basin.
Cape Split Provincial Park Reserve (Scots Bay), Blomidon Look-off Provincial Park, Grand Pre National Historic Site, and several museums nearby communities.
