About Taylor's Head, Nova Scotia

The Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia is a scenic, yet sparsely settled area, hosting dozens of small fishing harbours and communities. This area was once home to a number of gold mining operations which brought the early settlers to this area after the first discovery of this valuable mineral. Today there are a growing number of cottages and recreational properties, given the amount of unspoiled forests, inland lakes, sand beaches and dramatic coastlines. The most dramatic being that of Taylor’s Head. This long stretch of land reaches far out into the Atlantic Ocean to a stunning headland where seals are regularly spotted swimming amongst the waves in search of food.

The Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia is a real jewel waiting to be explored. From the longest, sandiest beach to the best surfing on the east coast of Canada, this coastline boasts an extremely pristine and diverse environment.
