Once off Highway 103 at Exit 10 you’ll find Mahone Bay directly on the scenic ‘Lighthouse Route’ , following a coast that looks out to over 365 islands, one for every day of the year! Steeped in nautical history and even a little piratical intrigue the town’s habour is carved out of Nova Scotia’s craggy South Shore. An assortment of artisan’s galleries, eclectic specialty shops, romantic restaurants, museums and inns, are simply charming and combine century old architecture with modern day amenities. By land or sea, summer, fall or winter, ‘active’ fun is right at hand. Sail, cycle, golf & kayak in the warmer months. Hike and cross country ski the miles of trails in winter. Unwind with a spa day or stroll a sandy beach.
