Canada’s Musical Coast is a string of beautiful communities and majestic coastline vistas bound together by musical traditions. The music culture here is written into the story…the very fabric of the coastline. During harsh winters and trying times, music and dance were neither indulgence nor luxury, but rather survival. Music culture here is honest, authentic and shared directly from the heart- this is a coast shaped by music.
We are pleased to share these wonders of our place with you.
Watch the sun set into the Northumberland Strait before you head out to find some live music! With a wide variety of accommodations we've got you covered.
We don't mean to brag but we have to. From sunrise to sunset we have an abundance of "things to do" that will leave you wanting to catch tomorrow's sunset too!
