MacCormack’s Beach and Fisherman’s Cove offer an unexpected and lovely east coast experience just a short drive from the City. Park your car and enjoy a stroll along the beach boardwalk with your pooch. You can walk from the boardwalk down to the beach to dip your toes (or paws) in the ocean (but be sure to respect the dunes). From the beach, make your way to Fisherman’s Cove along Government Wharf Road. The area is reminiscent of a true Nova Scotia fishing village. It features gift shops and fresh seafood.

How to Get There
