Mahone Bay Nova Scotia

Mahone Bay Nova Scotia

This pin I got while on the south shore of Nova Scotia, visiting Lunenberg and other areas on Mahone Bay. There is also a town, Mahone Bay, and this pin actually features the town. The town is a little town named for the Mahone Bay and its 365 islands, whose sparkling waters offer a unique setting for some world-class sailing and boating. People from all over the world are drawn to the area for just this reason, but there is much more to Mahone Bay!

Mahone Bay town is located only 1 hour from Halifax, and the Stanfield International Airport. This makes Mahone Bay easily accessible via Highway 103 on the beautiful south shore of Nova Scotia.

Starting with the arrival of the European settlers in 1754, the history of the Town of Mahone Bay can be traced in walkable, tree-lined streets. The town’s heritage homes and original architecture are much photographed and painted; however, for those whose visit leads to a love affair with the town, the one main street and side streets provide many shops and services in a safe and quiet environment. Recreational facilities abound; there is a first-class elementary school; and, in addition to our iconic “three churches” (shown on the pin), there are two others. Mahone Bay is a small town where almost everything is within walking distance.
