Nova Scotia has long been considered one of the world’s most beautiful regions. One of its lesser known destinations is the town of Digby, but where Digby is small and relatively obscure, it makes up for it with its glorious maritime culture, dramatic natural spectacles, convenient geographical location, and of course superb Canadian hospitality. Settled in 1793 by the Captain of the HMS Atalanta, Sir Robert Digby and his band of followers from New York and New England, Digby was initially utilised as a fishing and lumber port.
Today, it is a cleverly marketed haven for tourism, particularly as a gateway to the rest of Nova Scotia. Imagine clear skies, crisp fresh air, marvellous views, and a wide range of outdoor activities to enjoy – Digby offers this and more to all those lucky enough to visit her hallowed shores. Whale watching is a very popular pastime in these parts with some of the finest viewing spots found anywhere in North America while the town also attracts keen surfers eager to try their boards out on the outrageous 28 to 35ft tides the waters here produce. Digby is also home to a number of beautiful recreation parks where visitors can enjoy camping, as well as other landmarks such as the Admiral Digby Museum, the Heritage Centre, and the Fishermen and Soldiers Memorials.
The overwhelmingly picturesque Annapolis Basin is another of Digby’s most sought after attractions from where spectacular vistas as well as lovely sunsets can be viewed. Of course, Digby is not known as the Scallop Capital of the World for no reason; while passing through, visitors are encouraged to dine on the local cuisine that has been caught from these waters and specially prepared easily making them the best tasting scallops in the world.
