Marine Drive | Travel & Tourism Information Guide

Seascapes and Woodland WaterwaysThe traditions and legends of the sea come alive along the Marine Drive. Follow this special route through a land of pristine coastal beauty, where quiet shoreline roads lead through romantic seaside villages and the past is a colourful part of everyday life.

Experience the sights and sounds of Nova Scotia's living-history museums: a fishermen's store and a goldmining complex in a 1940s village at Memory Lane in Lake Charlotte; a blacksmith's hammer ringing at his forge and a picturesque sawmill in a thriving 19th-century town at Sherbrooke Village.

At Canso, step aboard for a short boat ride to Grassy Island National Historic Site, one of our earliest European settlements. An interpreted trail around the island leads past the remnants of a once-thriving fishing and merchant community of the early 1700s.

The Marine Drive is a playground for nature lovers-a world of magnificent coastal beauty where unspoiled beaches and tidal inlets beckon, and salt marshes teem with birds and wildlife. The ruggedly diverse coastline is a world-class destination for sea kayakers, and the seaside parks provide picnic facilities and superb hiking trails at some of the province's finest sand beaches. Inland, you'll find a vast but accessible wilderness whose myriad lakes and rivers are legendary with anglers and paddlers.
