Arisaig is a small picturesque fishing community on the Northumberland Shore, just a 25 min drive from Antigonish on Hwy 245.
Watch the fishing boats and the gulls. May and June are the lobster fishing season but some boats continue to fish during the summer months.
Enjoy an ice cream at the Lighthouse Canteen while you explore the colorful rocky cove – or at low tide walk on the sand of the crescent beach and go for a swim. From July 1 to end of August the Dockside Café has a light menu. Learn interesting facts about lobsters in the interpretive centre in the café.
There are other interesting things to do in the area to be explored in another post. Stay tuned.
