The South Shore—known as the Lighthouse Route for all the lighthouses that still stand—is the end of the road. Experience its way of life and be amazed by the diversity, beauty and peace of its coastal landscape.
The South Shore's traditions are shaped by the sea. From Peggy's Cove and further south to Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct, beaches offer countless outdoor adventures including sea kayaking, sailing, surfing and diving. Watch the seals sunning on flat ocean rocks. The Bluenose II is an example of Nova Scotia's seafaring traditions.
With miles of magnificent beaches, rugged coastline, pounding surf, quiet bays and protected inlets, Nova Scotia has something to offer any buyer. It's not unusual to find property so secluded that another building or person is nowhere to be seen. Expect fishing boats, wharves, weathered fish shacks, sailboats and all the characteristic features of coastal living.
