Smuggler's Cove, Nova Scotia

Smuggler’s Cove Provincial Park located in Meteghan (Highway 1, Evangeline Trail) in the Yarmouth and Acadian Shores region is a picturesque picnic park with tables in an open field overlooking a small cove and cave. Smuggler’s Cove is so named as it was a prime location for the smuggling of liquor during prohibition in the 1920s. The cove fills with ocean water during high tide and becomes inaccessible but can be reached during low tide. Visitors may proceed down the 80 steps to the ocean floor during low tide. Interpretive panels on site explain the history of the area. A path to the viewing platforms and guided walks are available.
