Hector Heritage Quay, Pictou

                       Welcome to Nova Scotia’s
                       beach destination.

                       W           ith 12 Provincial Park beaches to choose from, this shore
                                   is a beach bum’s paradise. There is always room for your
                                   beach towel so don your swimsuit and sunhat and head
                       out to Melmerby, Pomquet, or Heather Beach, where the sparkling
                       salt water averages more than 22°C (72°F) in the summer (see pages
                       142 –144). These long, sandy beaches are supervised in July and August.
                       This climate also lends itself well to the local wine industry, which is
                       anchored by Jost Vineyards, the province’s oldest and largest winery
                       (see page 141). Savour a glass along with some delicious local cheese,
                       as you overlook Jost’s lush vineyards.

                       and find your own unexpected discovery. Enjoy the fragrant aroma

                       Nova Scotia’s finest maple syrup.
