South Shore, Halifax, and the Shubenacadie River

Destinations shaped by seafaring and adventure.

South Shore, Halifax, and the Shubenacadie RiverSouth Shore traditions are shaped by the sea. Starting at Peggy's Cove with its world-famous lighthouse and ocean vistas, the coastline continues dotted with over 25 lighthouses, secluded coves and inviting beaches that offer countless outdoor adventures including sea kayaking, sailing, surfing and diving. Then move inland to Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site for outstanding hiking, biking and camping.

Fishing and shipbuilding were the industries that created many of the scenic towns and villages along the South Shore. Lunenburg's distinctive historic waterfront with its bright red buildings beckons visitors to explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to the famous schooner Bluenose II. Shelburne honours its boat building past by crafting dorys and building boats at the Muir-Cox Shipyard just as they have since 1820. Privateer Days in Liverpool pay tribute to maritime history with a vivid re-enactment of a battle between townspeople and privateers from the American Revolution who were infesting Nova Scotia's waters.

South Shore, Halifax, and the Shubenacadie RiverHistory is as thick as fog in Halifax Metro, and the region has long been a preferred port of call. The Mi’kmaq spent the summers here hunting and fishing, and after the city’s founding in 1749, sailors would haunt the rough & tumble taverns known as grog shops. Halifax was a key player in many armed conflicts including the War of 1812. These struggles hit too close to home during World War I, when a French munitions ship exploded after colliding with a Belgian relief ship. The Halifax Explosion would be the largest man-made explosion until the nuclear bomb, killing 2,000 and injuring another 9,000.
