The borough of Hunts Point is a two-hour drive from Halifax. This township is known for its sandy beach that is tucked into a protective cove. Go swimming or stroll along the beach. Visit Hunts Point wharf with its lobster traps and bait barrels. You’ll see fishing boats come in and go out with the tides. Surfers craving a fabulous experience can catch the waves from late August to mid-November. Visitors may explore the Atlantic coastline on guided canoeing and kayaking trips. Freshwater anglers can fish for speckled, rainbow and brown trout or white and yellow perch in the summer months. The area’s coniferous and deciduous forests, coastal salt marshes and beaches support a wide variety of birds. There are several parks, hiking and biking trails close by. Hunts Point is surrounded by the historic towns of Liverpool, Lunenburg and Mahone Bay, each replete with museums and quaint shops.
