Yarmouth, Nova Scotia

The heart of l’Acadie.


Feel the pulse of a vibrant Acadian community.

Head to the southernmost region of Nova Scotia for a decidedly relaxing change of pace, fabulous food, and extraordinary hospitality. The area is home to the oldest Acadian settlement in the province. A place where the spirit of l’Acadie is alive and well and experienced through rich music and culture. Enjoy local culinary specialties, such as creamed lobster and rappie pie. And since the port of Yarmouth is located in the heart of the world’s largest lobster fishing grounds, and is home to the largest fishing industry in Atlantic Canada, you’d better be prepared to enjoy plenty of seafood delicacies, too.


A world of discovery, at the tip of our world.

In this town shaped by the sea, explore fishing wharves, seaside festivities, distinctive architecture—including an impressive collection of more than 400 sea captains’ homes—sandy beaches, and grass-covered dunes. Explore a branch of the province’s art gallery—the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, towering churches, and the spectacular Cape Forchu Lightstation, which has been guiding vessels into the Yarmouth Harbour since 1840. And good news for golfers—a temperate climate means Yarmouth’s golf courses are the first to open and last to close, making for the longest golf season in Nova Scotia. Whatever you choose, you are sure to find people passionate about sharing and celebrating their ties to the sea—and their wonderful community.
