Owner description: 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.

“Fun Fun Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

What a fantastic place, you get a good walk on the boardwalk, lots of little shops, ice cream and Wharf Wraps is the place to eat, their salad with the blue cheese is out of this world ( and I am not a fan of blue cheese ) but i will be going back for it.

“A little disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

We spent some time here on a Tuesday late morning, most everything was closed leaving the area feeling desolate.
There was a beach next door and during low tide (which it was) there were folks clamming and children looking for ocean treasures.

“Great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

We didn't feel like making the drive out to Peggy's Cove, but felt the need to wander, and found Fisherman's Cove. We spent half a day here, looking in all the shops, eating at the restaurant (bring some sunscreen if you eat on the back deck!), and wandering around the little park. A very nice visit, with friendly people!

“Great East Coast Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

This is a very good short trip and worth it. Includes a very nice boardwalk, the entrance to the harbour; Devils Island lighthouse, great food and shops. Like seafood? Great place to purchase fresh from the boats!
