Natural advantages

Big and small, we’re defined by natural advantages and endless opportunity.


For more complete tourism information see:

The District of Guysborough has what more and more people the world over are seeking in their leisure time.  Peace, quiet and nature. Unspoiled natural beauty, rugged coast lines, fabulous sand beaches, pristine inland waterways. They are all here. The infrastructure needed to serve a natural tourism destination presents very real investment opportunities in the district.
Sport fishing, both inland and deep sea, including large species like Bluefin Tuna, offer real potential for development, as does big game hunting. Deer and bear are plentiful. There are numerous points of historical and cultural interest, including the earliest fishing port established during European settlement and the earliest communities of free people of African descent in North America.
