Fishermans Village at Eastern Passage, Halifax

Charming Day Trip just 30 Minutes from Halifax:

Crossing over to the Dartmouth side of Halifax you can enjoy seafood and other goodies in a restored fishing village, the "Fishermans Cove" in Eastern Passage, having seagulls sitting next to you, waiting for leftovers.



It is not only an awesome photo opportunity right at the roadside, but a boardwalk takes you out for a lovely stroll to the shore.  There is even a ferry over to McNabs Island where one can spent a few hours hiking the island.

Each of these restored fishing huts is painted in a different color and you can watch fisherman landing their catch.  A great little nautical museum explains the creatures that live in the adjacent Atlantic ocean and on the shores around Halifax.  Lots of quaint, colorful little shops, cafes and unique restaurants.  A really nice day trip to get a taste of Maritime life if you happen to be in Halifax!
