Mahone Bay

After visiting our municipality, why not explore a few of Nova Scotia’s other well-known towns on the
South Shore:

Described by Fodor’s Travel Wire as “a postcard perfect maritime town”, Mahone Bay truly embraces the art of seaside living. And in fact, the charming town, founded in 1754, is known for its iconic Nova Scotia image of three prominent churches nestled together along the river, frequently photographed and featured on postcards and calendars.

A favourite stop for tourists, visitors can always find loads to do; from sailing, swimming and cycling in the summer, to hiking and skiing in the winter. Or spend the day wandering cheerful Main Street with artisan’s galleries, specialty shops, romantic restaurants, spas and inns. Mahone Bay has captured the magic of centuries old architecture mixed with the effortless vibe of modern day coastal living.
