Whether you enjoy gardens & parks, beaches or ski slopes, "Canada's Ocean Playground" has it all, and you're never more than 75 miles from the sea no matter where you go!  Drive yourself along our scenic highways, or catch the bus just a few minutes walk away.  See what our visitors have to say in our Testimonials below...

Experience the rugged beauty of our bays and inlets...

There is natural beauty to enjoy year round; cruise ships in summer, seals fishing among the ice in winter, the comings and goings of the Pilot Boat in all seasons and weathers.  Halifax has one of the finest harbours in the world and all ships, from container to cruise, stop at Herring Cove to await the harbour pilot's boat, which docks right next door!
