Come to your Senses in Lunenburg Region

Feel the handcrafted masterpieces of local artists. See wildlife in their natural habitat. Taste food fresh from the land and the sea. Hear the crash of waves and laughter on the shore.

Lunenburg Region is the area surrounding the towns of Bridgewater, Mahone Bay and the UNESCO Town of Lunenburg on Nova Scotia’s South Shore. There is so much to see and experience — from trails, beaches, parks and museums, to wineries, golf, galleries and fabulous artisans.

People like to come here for the seacoast beauty and to simply breath deep. They can go to the beach or explore one of the trails, check out the artisans or a museum, have lunch, and relax at one of our many parks. Discover the region’s celebrated beaches. Risser’s Beach is a top camping destination, with more than a kilometre of beautiful white sand and a wonderful boardwalk. Hirtle’s Beach is a popular spot for bird-watchers — and is considered a “living beach” since it’s constantly shifting at the whim of the ocean. Head off on an adventure, hiking from Hirtle’s Beach onto the trails leading to Gaff Point — where your efforts will be rewarded with an unbelievable cliff-top view of the ocean.

For those longing to explore local art and culture, Westcote Bell Pottery and Studio is just one of the many extraordinary artisans in the area offering one-of-a-kind handmade pottery. Also, be sure to stop by LaHave Bakery — known as a “hidden gem” by the locals. When the sun goes down, finish your day at the Best Western Plus Bridgewater Hotel & Convention Centre, and take advantage of the indoor saltwater pool, spiral waterslide, and hot tub.
