Your Guide To Accommodations In Nova Scotia

Hantsport, Nova Scotia

View the world's highest tides, one of nature's most extraordinary spectacles in Hantsport, a picturesque town, steeped in marine heritage. The fifth largest wooden shipbuilding centre in the world from 1850 to 1880, the Bay of Fundy tides, which rise to 50 feet, have given Hantsport one of the few natural dry-docks in the world. Enjoy a stroll to the waterfront parks for terrific views of Cape Blomidon and the Minas Basin. During your visit, plan a side trip to Blue Beach. Its name reflects the colour of the stone that composes the beach. The rich variety of fossils includes footprints of the oldest amphibians ever found.
