Escape to eastern Canada’s rural paradise

Often referred to as the “sunshine coast”, the Northumberland Strait Shore region of Nova Scotia delivers an incredible variety of coastal vacation experiences. Tracing along the coast is one of the province’s most spectacular scenic drives, the Sunrise Trail, giving you plenty of opportunities to witness the natural beauty of the Maritimes. The Northumberland Shore is also home to a handful of wide, sandy beaches and the warmest salt water north of the Carolinas!

Hike a trail, visit a local vineyard or sink into the history of the area. Our Northumberland Shore destination itineraries can guide to you to many top things to see and do on both sides of Nova Scotia’s Northumberland Strait.
