Visitors to the South Shore of Nova Scotia truly are entering a world of wonder, complete with the quaintest of villages and the busiest of urban centres.
The South Shore is a region where cultures come together, where history comes to life in architecture and in seasonal festivals, and where visitors and locals alike can have all of their material needs met, with our wealth of shops, services and restaurants.
Peggys Cove is one of the busiest tourist attractions in Nova Scotia and is a prime attraction on the Lighthouse Trail scenic drive. The community’s famous lighthouse marks the eastern entrance of St. Margarets Bay and is officially known as the Peggys Point Lighthouse.
Unique, unspoiled promontory of 124 acres separates the LaHave estuary and Hartling Bay. It consists of marine, terrestrial and wetland ecosystems. Both sides of the point have steep cliffs; there are tidal pools where topography becomes gentler; and sand and gravel beaches along the shoreline.
