hi folks,

Welcome to Your Nova Scotia Travel Tips.

Nova Scotia 2022 summer vacations are upon us! Have you made your plans?

I was lucky enough to spend some time exploring the best beaches along the Northumberland Shore in July. These are some of the warmest waters in Nova Scotia.

I haven't had the time to create pages on my website yet but I did take many videos. And I have been able to add these to my YouTube Channel.

Have a look and make plans to visit the ones that inspire you. These are gorgeous beaches!!

Pomquet Beach
Blue Sea Beach
Amherst Shore Beach
Bayfield Beach
Waterside Beach
Melmerby Beach
Rushton's Beach
Caribou-Munroes Island Beach

I also had the good fortune of witnessing 2 sail boats encounter each other as they made their way through the Barra Strait in the Bras d'or Lake in Cape Breton. It was awesome and I was able to get it on video!!

While camping I couldn't resist a little video of my campfire with the sound of the crashing waves at Caribou-Munroes Island beach in the background.

Find accommodations on Trip Advisor

Trip Advisor says that Nova Scotia is one of Canada's top destinations. I didn't need Trip Advisor to tell me this!! LOL!

Seriously, Trip Advisor is a great tool when planning a trip. I use it all the time and try to write reviews when I can.

Use this link Nova Scotia accommodations on Trip Advisor for your search and to make your accommodations booking. I earn a small commission with each reservation made via my site and this helps pay my expenses.

I would really appreciate it!! Cheers!!
