South Shore - Nova Scotia

Coastal charm, outdoor adventure,
and sea-inspired artisans
F
rom the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Town
Lunenburg, featuring its colourful waterfront and narrow streets, to the inspiring views of the coast and its
40-plus lighthouses, the South Shore is much more than the
home of Bluenose II and the must-photograph Peggy’s Cove.
It is a place where you can live in the moment, let your mind
wander, and surprise yourself, perhaps by rowing a traditional dory near Cape Sable Island or throwing an axe with
six-time World Log Rolling Champion Darren Hudson at his
Lumberjack AXEperience in Barrington.
South Shore
Make some new connections with people and place at the
Port Medway Readers’ Festival. At Kejimkujik National Park and
National Historic Site, discover Mi’kmaw petroglyphs etched
in rock, with the help of an interpreter, and experience stunning
stargazing in the Dark Sky Preserve.
Culinary delights abound here, and fresh and delicious seafood serves as the cornerstone of many delectable dining
experiences, like the famed Shore Club Lobster Suppers in
Hubbards, which has served more than one million lobster
suppers in the past 70 years. After a stroll along historic Dock
Street in Shelburne, take a few steps up to the quaint Charlotte
Lane Café, two-time winner of the Nova Scotia Best Small
Restaurant Award. Tasty seafood is never far!

Shore one of your culinary destinations.
The historic town of Lunenburg is one of Nova Scotia’s culinary hot-spots. Taste

Deli and the Grand Banker. A trip to Lunenburg is not complete without dinner
at the award-winning restaurant Fleur de Sel. Visit Ironworks Distillery, located in
the heart of old Lunenburg, where fine liqueurs and spirits are distilled by hand
using many locally sourced ingredients.
One of the secrets to an amazing food experience is finding the perfect setting.
For lobster lovers, the Shore Club’s Lobster Suppers have been pleasing palates
for over 70 years. With its scenic ocean view, the Galley Restaurant & Lounge
serves up fresh lobster, seafood chowder, mussels, and more.
Whether you’re enjoying lunch at the Biscuit Eater Café or lobster fondue at the

Beachiness is a word.
Along with the sandy, hand-holding simplicity of sun-soaked days
at the seashore, comes a language native to White Point.
We shuck, we smudge, we plank year-round, and we make a distinct
“fwap” with the cottage door as we head for a round of golf. Here on the
South Shore, you’ll find time for skipping stones, tossing shoes, and
roasting marshmallows to gooey perfection. (S’moring.) You’ll sing along,
sip along, surf, nap, splash, unwind, and revel in the rustic, lobstery,
beachiness of it all.
