Nova Scotia truly is one of the few remaining places left on earth where you can find raw natural beauty that is essentially untouched! While visiting your home away from home, you’ll be able to enjoy activities like swimming, windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, canoeing, water-skiing, snorkeling, and fishing. Be sure to pack your rods if you’re going boating ­– you may be able to reel in some mackerel or cod. 

When you’re not busy with water activities, you can enjoy beachside barbeques while watching for wildlife like seals, bald eagles, grey herons, and loons. You can also spend time relaxing on serene sunset walks and stargazing on clear evenings.
