Description

Nova Scotia, on the south east of Canada, is a place of intrigue and beauty, and the regions' South Shore epitomises that. Not only are there dozens of proud lighthouses standing watch along this rugged coast there are also quaint small towns, like Lunenburg and Shelburne, with historic streetscapes so unchanged you feel as though you might just have entered a centuries-wide time warp. This video shows a few of the highlights of the South Shore, for example: Mahone Bay Mahone Bay is considered by many as one of the most beautiful towns in Canada. Situated on a bay of more than 100 islands 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 holiday destination. Oak Island The Oak Island Money Pit is the site of the world's longest running hunt for lost treasure. For hundreds of years, treasure hunters have ventured here to recover the treasure lies in the Money Pit, protected by a series of ingenious traps. Strange man made artefacts have been recovered from the pit over the years, but to this day, the treasure still remains buried. Lunenburg The picturesque town of Lunenburg is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and winner of Prettiest Painted Places in Canada. You can enjoy Lunenburg's historic architecture, working waterfront, walking tours, seafood and local specialties, fine art, golf courses, festivals, Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, and many other attractions. Liverpool A vibrant and lively community the "Port of the Privateers" boasts many festivals and attractions. You can experience the majestic colonial houses of captains past and visit wonderful museums showcasing the area's rich history, country music, folk art, world class photography and wildlife. Hike along the beautiful coastline dotted with lighthouses and dig your toes into our unspoiled white sand beaches. At the end of the day sit by the Mersey River and bask in the glow of the setting sun all the while imagining the Privateers of long ago. White Point White Point is home to world-renowned White Point Beach Resort, tucked away in a wooded area along the coast. Visitors have enjoyed the Resort since 1928. Centrally located on Nova Scotia's South Shore, just 90 minutes from Halifax, White Point is surrounded by water - the Atlantic Ocean, a fresh water lake and a tidal estuary
