We are the little town named for the Mahone Bay and its 365 islands, whose sparkling waters offer a unique setting for some world-class sailing and boating. People from all over the world are drawn to our area for just this reason, but there is much more to Mahone Bay!

We are located only 1 hour from Halifax, and the Stanfield International Airport. This makes Mahone Bay easily accessible via Highway 103 on the beautiful south shore of Nova Scotia.

Starting with the arrival of the European settlers in 1754, the history of the Town of Mahone Bay can be traced in our walkable, tree-lined streets. The town's heritage homes and original architecture are much photographed and painted; however, for those whose visit leads to a love affair with the town, the one main street and side streets provide many shops and services in a safe and quiet environment. Recreational facilities abound; there is a first-class elementary school; and, in addition to our iconic 'three churches', there are two others. Mahone Bay is a small town where almost everything is within walking distance.

Mahone Bay also produces many events and festivals which appeal to residents and visitors alike. They are made possible thanks to the many volunteers who have involved themselves in the life of the town. You will find the town has much to offer. We invite you to come see just how special Mahone Bay is - 'a treasure since 1754'.
