Naturally Spectacular

Vivid coastlines, whale watching, and unforgettable views await you on Digby Neck and Long & Brier Islands.

The scenic drive will take you through fishing communities, rolling hills and past many incredible serene coves. The Maud Lewis Replica House, Gullivers Cove Trail and Sandy Cove Beach are must stops along Digby Neck.

While on Long Island, make sure to stop by Boar’s Head Lighthouse, Balancing Rock and Beautiful Cove.

Once on Brier Island, visit the Joshua Slocum monument to learn about how he became the first person to sail solo around the world, take the Seal Cove trail to get a glimpse of playful seals, and be sure to check out Western Light lighthouse, especially as the sun is going down.
