Welcome to Yarmouth!

At the heart of Nova Scotia's Acadian community is Yarmouth, a town known for its unique heritage and rich history. Yarmouth's location on the southeast end of the Nova Scotian peninsula makes it a common entry point for visitors from the Eastern United States, who seem to fall in love with the area's extraordinary French maritime charm. The town is well-known for its uniquely-shaped Cape Forchu Lighthouse, although Yarmouth has a number of other must-see attractions, including the Killam Bros. Shipping Office, an historic site which dates back to the 1800s, and now has the distinction of being Canada's oldest postal outlet. Water enthusiasts will love the nearby Mavillette and Port Maitland beaches, where the view is as powerful as the rolling ocean tides. The famous Yarmouth Seafest happens every July and features a variety of festivities, including fireworks, a pageant and, of course, a fish feast.
