About Brier Island

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

Visitors to Brier Island can enjoy unique basalt geology, charming lighthouses, and a diversity of birds, whales, & wildflowers.
