Mahone Bay Travel Guide

Located on the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia and directly on the Lighthouse Route, Mahone Bay area boasts 365 islands, one for every day of the year! Mahone Bay's protected waters and beautiful vistas make it a popular sailing and kayaking destination.

"Mahone Bay is both a postcard-perfect maritime town and an ideal base for exploring the stretch of coastline known as the South Shore." (Fodor's Travel Wire). Named one of Canada's best small-town downtowns by Harrowsmith Country Life Magazine, Mahone Bay is also considered by many as one of the most beautiful towns in Canada.

Situated on a bay of more than 100 islands, the small Nova Scotian town, which the New York Times calls "pretty as a picture", is a treasury of history, culture and 19th century architecture. The charming main street hosts an assortment of art galleries, specialty shops and living museums - all within an easy stroll.

Romantic restaurants, comfortable small inns, golfing and a full service spa complement the serenity and natural beauty of Mahone Bay to make this a very special vacation destination. Hike or cross-country ski the miles of trails; sail or kayak among the islands or simply relax and enjoy the view!

Settlers built the town amid the natural surroundings of lush forests and clear streams, overlooking the sheltered harbour anchorage from atop gentle hills. They paid tribute to what nature provided in their workmanship and joy of life. The Bayview Cemetery in Mahone Bay is significant because the markings are in German. German markings would indicate the gravestones date soon after the arrival of the German settlers before they adopted the English language in their new home.
