Things to Do

From total relaxation to exhilarating thrills, we have something for everyone at Seawind Landing.  You can spend a whole day on your private deck just enjoying the view, exploring our 20 acre peninsula, or walking to a nearby island accessible at low tide.  Seawind Landing - Forster's Island walk

History buffs will find Guysborough a fascinating destination rich in stories that make up this region’s past.  A vast physical and cultural history is well documented at the many museums, historical sites and interpretive trails found in the area.  And don’t forget to ask the locals!  They are often the source of some of the best stories you’ll ever hear.

There are so many great trails, museums and parks to enjoy that we’ve put together some detailed itineraries to help plan your time with us.

For  Rejuvenation:  Imagine a day where all you hear are the sounds of the ocean; where you lose yourself in the sparkling water that fills your vision;  where you can just breathe.

For the History_Lover:  Imagine a day where you are moved by the history of the local Acadian people; where your heart is warmed by stories of lighthouse keepers of old;  where you walk in the footsteps of 16th century settlers.

For the  Nature_Lover:  Imagine a day where you can wander for hours and not see another soul;  fresh berries are yours for the picking; and Mother Nature’s handiwork has sculpted the land around you.

Our “Not to Miss” List

Here are our top five local attractions that we think are too good to miss.

1.  Tor Bay Provincial Park of the Atlantic, Tor Bay

Tor Bay Dreaming
One of our favorite parks is located only ten minutes away.  Sand, sun, and surf combine to create a beautiful place for a picnic or quiet contemplation.  Quite often you will have the whole place to yourself.  Truly a hidden gem!

2. Le Parc de Nos Ancêtres, Larry’s River

Le Parc de nos ancestres
Experience the moving and unique depiction of the local Acadian history at Le Parc de nos Ancêtres in Larry’s River.  The challenges of the past and the resilience and determination of the local Acadian people to survive and prosper is captured on stone along with bilingual interpretative panels.  Beautifully done.

3. Black Duck Cove, Little Dover


A picture perfect gentle stroll along a very pretty stretch of coast.  Gravel paths or boardwalk make this an easy stroll (even for Beaufort).

4. Queensport Road Hiking Trail

An Erratic on the Barrens Trail
This old road leads to the remains of a WWII Air Force radar base, huge glacial  erratics (rocks left from the ice age) and on a clear day, a spectacular view!

5. Out of the Fog Museum, Half Island Cove

out of the fog
Don’t let the size of this little museum fool you for inside this volunteer curated and operated museum lies a lot of heart.  The Keepers of the Light Society maintain the museum.  Its members are former lightkeepers and their families, fishermen and others with close ties to this once essential occupation. In addition to their great collection of artifacts, expect to hear a few great stories.
