Nestled on the west side of the Annapolis Basin is the Town of Digby. Settled in 1783 by United Empire Loyalists, the Digby Area contains diverse environments with inland rivers, lakes and coastal vistas. There are kilometres of coastline along the Fundy Shore, by way of Digby Neck and Islands, providing some of the best whale watching tours around. Artists and crafts people are abundant throughout quaint villages that reflect a time gone by. The Town of Digby is known for its world famous Digby Scallops, an eating experience that is a must while staying in the area. Like the Bay of Fundy itself, it is “phenomenal”.
