Tucked away in Isaac’s Harbour along Nova Scotia’s picturesque Atlantic Coast, Hurricane Hole Island was once a popular place to cast anchor – a safe harbour for the local fishing communities. The island also played an important role in the Nova Scotian gold rush of the 19th century and even formed home to a gold mine. These days, the island is covered in dense woodland and boasts a series of beautiful beaches and bays.At low-tide, the island is connected to a nearby mainland peninsula. From here, the well-paved Marine Drive road connects guests to the nearby fishing villages of Goldboro and Isaac’s Harbour before eventually leading on to Halifax (three hours away).
