Get to Know Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore.

Taylor+Head+Beach

Hang a frosty ten on the Eastern Shore, where surf’s up year round. The pounding waves at Lawrencetown and Martinique beaches are music to the ears of longboarders.

After playing in the chop, try playing in the sand – with miles of beaches and dunes, we’ve got you covered, sometimes literally. Re-awaken skills honed in childhood at the annual Clam Harbour Beach Sand Castle Competition although expect to see pirate ships, dinosaurs, and human-eating octopi among the sand forts.

Explore 100 Wild Islands

The Eastern Shore features 100 coastal islands that have been largely undisturbed by humans for over 10,000 years.  Stretch from Clam Harbour to Liscomb, the islands are easily accessible by a guided sea kayak tour with Coastal Adventures. These islands offer pristine white sand beaches, sheltered coves, dramatic windswept headlands, and unique boreal forests, bogs and barrens, as well as a rich diversity of seabirds, songbirds, and shorebirds.  Deemed a “Coastal Wilderness of ecological significance unmatched in North America” by the Nova Scotia Nature Trust – climb in a kayak and start exploring.

Stan Rogers Folk Festival

Shake the sand off your beach chair and unfold it at the Stan Rogers Folk Festival. Held in the small fishing village of Canso, this musical smorgasbord offers more than 100 concerns featuring an eclectic menu of Celtic, country, folk, blues, rock, and bluegrass music and attracts over 12,000 music fans each year.
