Nova Scotia is almost entirely surrounded by water so there is a whole lot of coast. The Northumberland Shore has some awesome sandy beaches and the Atlantic coast is beautiful and dramatic. I bet the beach isn’t the first thing you think of when you think Canada, but Nova Scotia’s got it!

With so much coastline getting out on the water either boating, fishing, or kayaking is a part of life in Nova Scotia. The views from the water are always pretty too!

There are 150 operational lighthouses all over Nova Scotia. While most of the lighthouses have a red and white paint job, no lighthouse is painted the same, making each one unique and iconic in its own way.

The Outdoors

The coastal towns of Nova Scotia are full of brightly colored buildings. Originally the buildings were painted bright colors for fishermen and anyone else out on the water to be able to see the shore and find their village.
