About the Eastern Shore

A nature lover’s paradise

This region's rugged coastline is a world-class destination for outdoor enthusiasts, and the seaside parks provide picnic spots and superb hiking trails at some of the province’s finest sand beaches. The pounding waves of Lawrencetown Beach have long made it a mecca for surfers and windsurfers, while fishermen are drawn to the region’s lakes and rivers.

This area is also brimming with history. Sherbrooke Village lets you step back in time to a 1860s lumbering and shipbuilding community, and museums at Goldboro and Goldenville bring to life the history of gold mining in Nova Scotia.
