The Eastern Shore stretches for more than 200 kilometres, winding from the outer edge of Dartmouth to the craggy island cliffs past Canso. Along the way there are protected wilderness areas, hundreds of kilometres trails – from rugged and challenging to well-maintained and accessible – beaches, lakes, rivers, bays, inlets, coves, salt marshes and more to enjoy and explore. Of course, the ubiquitous presence of the sea shapes the vast majority of the outdoor adventures and activities here for you to enjoy. Whatever your perception of adventure is – riding hurricane-tossed swells on a surfboard in autumn or strapping on binoculars on a harbour sightseeing tour that takes you where the seabirds perch and the seals play in the surf – you are going to find a way to experience the Eastern Shore outdoors in a way that will have you talking over the daytime excitement late into the evening over a beverage in a cozy pub come nightfall.
The islands off our coast offer up some of the best sea kayaking you are likely to find anywhere. You can rent a kayak and ask around for tips on the best route to take, or sign on for a guided tour that lasts anywhere from an hour to a week. The hiking and cycling opportunities are endless as well. Explore any or all of our 19 provincial parks that range from the sand and signature Nova Scotia cobblestone of Rainbow Haven Beach with plenty of amenities to the shoreline trails of Black Duck Cove , a day-use park with a scenic beach perfect for picnicking.
