Northumberland Shore



Summers in Nova Scotia aren’t complete without a visit to the Northumberland Shore! This region is Nova Scotia’s cottage country, and home to endless beaches and coastal vineyards. Visit Jost Vineyards for a sip of Tidal Bay, Tatamagouche Brewing Company to sample their Hippie Dippie Pale Ale or take in the Ginstitute at Steinhart Distillery. Experience maple magic at Sugar Moon Farm, a traditional maple syrup farm in the sugar woods of Earltown. Try local oysters from Bay Enterprises Ltd., local pork chops from The Pork Shop, cheese from Knoydart Cheese House & Farm and decadent ultra-premium ice cream from Tatamagouche Ice Creamery. This abundance of local ingredients can be found on restaurant menus across the region, from Amherst Shore Country Inn to Gabrieau’s Bistro – all topped off with some of the best sunsets in the region.
