They call us Canada’s ocean playground. And with more than 7,600 kilometres (4,750 miles) of staggeringly beautiful coastline, who are we to disagree? Rugged and rocky shores one minute, soft and sandy the next. Marvel at the world’s highest tides, legendary whale watching, and strings of pretty fishing towns. Visit majestic lighthouses, spectacular dunes, and extraordinary beaches. Travel from one surprise to the next. There are countless adventures—either seaside or out on the wide-open sea—and plenty of opportunities for outdoor exploration. But if it’s a vibrant city life and rich culture you’re after, we’ve got that, too. Nova Scotia has it all.
