Nova Scotia is home to many tiny fishing villages such as Peggy’s Cove and Cheticamp, but this is one you may have missed on the map.
Halls Harbour is a picturesque seaside village located along the shores of the Bay of Fundy where the fishing boats raise and lower with the world’s highest tides. The other side of Halls Harbour overlooks the Annapolis Valley. There is also legend of buried treasure from the 1700’s.
Halls Harbour is worth the drive and you would be advised to arrive hungry. We recommend enjoying a creative lobster dish or other plate of seafood at the bustling Halls Harbour Lobster Pound and Restaurant.. It overlooks the fishing fleet and opens May 13, 2023 for the season.
Legend says there could be treasure buried in the woods surrounding the village’s harbour. Samuel Hall, an American privateer, is said to have left treasure behind in the area when he was forced to abandon his ship in the harbour due to pursuing militia in 1779. Hall would raid settlements in the Annapolis Valley from the harbour, hence the name, Halls Harbour.
When you visit, be sure to snap a photo of the boats resting on the bottom of the cove and then again when the tide comes in!
