About
Fisherman's Cove is a quaint 200 year old fishing village. It offers visitors a peek into the past while providing a variety of modern day activities for the whole family. It has the sounds of the ocean, seagulls, and sand pipers. Stroll the boardwalk and relax in the sand at MacCormack's Beach. Catch a glimpse of the osprey and herons as they enjoy fishing off the beach. Watch fishing boats come home with their catch and sail boats drift by as they enter the Halifax Harbour through the eastern passage.

Nice little shops with pleasant people to distract you. Nice walking trail around the cove. Luckily it survived the Hurricane with little damage.

While it was scenic enough, and we enjoyed the vistas out on to the water with the city of Halifax in the distance, the village itself leaved a bit to be desired...it was not as lively as we'd hoped. We were sort of expecting there to be some period interpreters from a historical society, or something that would bring it more to life. But the huts themselves were well decorated and arranged, and sold a variety of interesting trinkets and whatnot.

This is interesting to walk though. At our stage of life (76 and 77), we don't buy many souvenirs, but the buildings are colourful, and the ice cream was very good!

Our first visit to Fishermen's Cove. This is a lengthy strip of quaint little craft shacks, beautifully presented and maintained. Having been to Peggy's Cove many times, I'd rate this close as a place to spend an hour or too or take visitors. The boutiques were all crammed with interesting things and, without exception, all operators were fun and interesting to talk to. Parking is easy. There are many, many benches outside the shops along the boardwalk for husband's to sit waiting while solving the world's problems. Overall a great tourist spot. They say it gets very busy in the summer season.

A short drive from Halifax and enjoy the quaint local shops. Stroll along the boardwalk for some nice views along the waterfront. Tons of free parking.

I saw some great photos and tought it would be more like a small village but it was only some random mini houses all transformed into tourist boutiques (they were all closed at this time). There was not really good views of the little bay and it was industrial zone… I did not even take a photo.

Absolutely delightful boardwalk with ample parking featuring an ice cream shop, candy shop, and a couple of restaurants for a more substantial bite to eat. Boat and jet ski rentals add to the fun. Will definitely be back once Covid is over and more shops are open.

Our friend took us on a brief tour of Halifax which included a visit to Fisherman’s Cove. This is a tourist’s delight with its many gift shops, food / restaurant choices, and great views of the surrounding waters and countryside.
