About Brier Island

On Nova Scotia’s southwestern coast a thin strip of land extends into the Bay of Fundy, leading to a string of two small islands. The peninsula (called the “Digby Neck”) is followed by Long Island, and ends with Brier Island – the westernmost point of Nova Scotia.

Visitors to Brier Island will find unique basalt geology, charming lighthouses, and a diversity of birds, whales, & wildflowers. Brier Island isn’t overrun with tourists – this is real Nova Scotia, where lobster fishing is one of the main occupations and hospitality is warm and authentic.

We hope this site helps you plan your visit to Brier Island, and when you see it you fall in love with it as much as we did.
