Nova Scotia is famed for its lobster, hospitality, and ocean views. Located only 90 minutes from Halifax, Fox Harb’r Resort, has become a hub of the province’s beach-laced Northumberland Shore, curating all that coastal beauty with an indulgent twist.
Here are three unexpected tips why you should head for the East Coast in 2019.
Fox Harb’r Resort is focused around its landmark championship golf course, where Tiger Woods holds the course record and the dramatic, links-style back nine flows along the Atlantic. But this 1,100 acre retreat also offers a 9-hole, par 3 course, ideal for building short game skills, and an extensive Golf Learning Academy. Plus, including Fox Harb’r, Canada’s second-smallest province is home to four of Golf Digest’s current “Top 30 Courses in Canada.”
Nova Scotia might not be your first thought when it comes to award-win- ning wine, beer, and spirits, but Wine Spectator lauded Fox Harb’r Resort has its own vineyard and it is just around the corner from wine-making partner Jost Vineyards. There are two charming distilleries on the region’s aptly named Sunrise Trail. One just took top honours at the World Gin Awards. And Nova Scotia is home to over 50 craft breweries, including resort neighbour Tatamagouche Brewing.
From spring through fall, Nova Scotians really live outdoors. At Fox Harb’r, unique pursuits include sporting clay shooting, oceanside horseback riding, archery and pickleball. And, across their North Shore home, you can kayak to see seals, cycle by the sea, or simply sit in lavender fields.
