Occupying a thin strip of land that branches out from Cape Sable Island, The Hawk extends like an arm into the Atlantic. It is the Southern-most point of Nova Scotia, and if your line of vision could sweep out in a straight line in front of you destinations as far south as Bermuda could be seen.

A tiny community is nestled here, among the weathered trees and barren landscape. From almost every standpoint you can see the ocean, and how the land has been shaped by its frequently shifting moods.

When you look to the horizon, nothing but miles of sea meets your eyes, no dotted specks of land to obscure the subtle shift in tones from water to sky.

This beautiful place was one of our favourite stops last summer – if you haven’t been, we hope you’ll visit and feel the same way!
