Other Annapolis Valley Attractions
Follow a popular eight-kilometre (five-mile) hiking trail from Scots Bay to Cape Split. From this narrow finger of land, which extends nearly across the Minas Channel, views of the Bay of Fundy are nothing short of extraordinary. If timed properly, hear a hollow roar, caused by turbulent waters surging over the submarine ridges far below, that fills the cliffs and forests at the mid-point of the incoming tide. Two hours in each direction, this is one photo opportunity you will not want to pass by.
A former pirate base, today Halls Harbour is one the few authentic surviving fishing villages along the shores of Nova Scotia. Stroll along the Boardwalk, hike the ecotrail, explore the ocean floor or browse the galleries. Visit the Halls Harbour Lobster Pound for a “Lobster in the Rough” dining experience – choose, cook and crack your own Bay of Fundy lobster. Halls Harbour is a great location to witness spectacular sunsets in a quaint, friendly environment.
