Eastern Shore Map

Rugged wilderness, sheltered coves, salt marshes, dramatic windswept headlands, pristine beaches, heritage attractions, and the untouched 100 Wild Islands; this and so much more is what awaits you on Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore.

Peggy's Cove Coastal Region Map

Breathtaking ocean views and clear blue waters make the area’s numerous coastal hikes some of Halifax’s most popular. Most prominently, this region is known for its namesake, the famous Peggy’s Point Lighthouse. One of the most photographed lighthouses in the world, Peggy’s Cove is an iconic Canadian image and an attraction well worth the short drive from downtown Halifax.

Map of Mi’kma’ki

Parks Canada worked closely with Mi’kmaq and other local groups to create this map that showcases not only the landscape of the region but also preserves its cultural significance through the translation of important place names. These names reflect hunting grounds, landmarks, fishing spots, and natural elements significant to the Mi’kmaq and indicative of their deep connection to the environment.
