Welcome to Shelburne County
Welcome to Shelburne County, where a fabulous coastal holiday adventure awaits you on the breathtaking southern tip of Nova Scotia.
Escape the ordinary and settle in to a more natural way of life where your alarm clocks are the seagulls flying overhead and you are soothed to sleep by the sound of the waves splashing against the shore.
Here you will become enchanted by our unspoiled panoramic views; whether it’s from one of our many pristine white sandy beaches, strolling historic Dock Street in the Town of Shelburne, floating down a river or from the top of a lighthouse.
Our Maritime hospitality, culture and heritage are celebrated all year long through our many festivals and events. Come and experience our seafaring history either from the bow of an 18th Century Longboat or donning a sou’wester and testing the oars of a dory. Explore our picturesque coastline where we are home to one of the best birding locations in Nova Scotia.
Whether you rent a cottage by the sea, cozy up in a beautiful Inn or Bed & Breakfast, relax in a motel or camp out under the stars; whatever you choose, Shelburne County is the best place to see and experience maritime life at its finest and we know you'll love it here!
