The South Shore of Nova Scotia offers the best year round hiking. The long stretches of white sandy beaches,easy access and moderate temperature throughout the year make the South Shore a favourite for hikers.

Fish & Chips & Lobster Gear
The town once a bustling ship building port was home to over 3000 people, hence Commercial Street, once lined with hotels and merchants, now lined with stately homes that sometimes double as summer cottages.
Streets in Port Medway
Continue past the store to the local wharf, where you will find Tony’s fish plant, if the timing is right you can find fresh haddock for sale.
Port Medway Fish Plant
Grab a lunch from Ocean Breeze take out at the Port Store and enjoy the views from the Lighthouse Park’s Gazebo or the viewing platform.
A stroll around the square will give you up close views of both grand old homes and the Medway Harbour. Just enough time to eat an ice cream.
Port Medway is almost half way between Bridgewater and Liverpool on Nova Scotia’s South Shore. Take exit 17A to Port Medway, from highway 103. The Port Medway road is approximately 7 kilometres from the highway to the Port Store.
