Blue Rocks
...a stunning fishing village...

Blue Rocks is one of the most stunning fishing villages in all of Nova Scotia.  It has been called ‘Little Peggy's Cove’ but without the crowds.

Blue Rocks is calm, quaint and simply gorgeous. This is a tiny community with a ton of charm.  You'll find this little place along the Lighthouse Route.

This unique spot was discovered years ago by artists and photographers in search of pristine places to practice their trade. They certainly found it here.

Many fishing shacks remain along the shore which beg the attention of an artist brush or a camera.

We strolled along the rocks and couldn’t get enough of the scenery. We saw fishing boats and sailing boats offshore just waiting for their next adventure into the calm waters that surround Blue Rocks.

Kayaking at Blue Rocks

If you want to get on the water and discover more of this secluded paradise then consider kayaking. This area is one of the best kayaking destinations in Nova Scotia.
