Belle Cote, Nova Scotia

Translated, this area would be 'beautiful side' and it is well named. Belle Cote is found on the north side of the Margaree River and Margaree Harbour, where the river meets the ocean.

There's a busy wharf here, where lobster, crab, scallop and tuna fishers come home and sort their catch for market. The best time to see this activity is midday from spring to fall. On the other side of the long breakwater which protects the harbour, there's Belle Cote beach, a long expanse of sand and pebbles which is an excellent walking beach. There's also fresh seafood for sit-down dining or take-out at the Island Sunset Resort; there's also a spa if you need pampering. There's also The Hungry Skipper, a family restaurant nearby on the Cabot Trail.

If you're here at the right time of year, you can enjoy 'Belle Cote Days,' a local celebration with food, music and dance. If you drive the road on the north side of the river toward East Margaree, there are some spectacular views out over the Margaree River.
