Welcome to the Municipality of Barrington – The Lobster Capital of Canada.
We are located on the southwestern tip of Nova Scotia, approximately 45 minutes east of the Town of Yarmouth, 2 hours from Digby, and 2.5 hours from Halifax.
Become enchanted by our unspoiled panoramic views; whether it’s from one of our many pristine white sand beaches, trail systems, or on the banks of a river.
We are the Lobster Capital of Canada and home to many delectable seafood experiences. Explore our picturesque coastal destination, celebrate our rich culture and heritage through our many fun-filled festivals and events, and experience southern hospitality at its best!
Experience our seafaring history from the oars of a traditional Nova Scotia dory or by climbing the stairs of a majestic lighthouse, like the lighthouse keepers did years before, and peering out over the Atlantic Ocean from the top. We are one of the best birding destinations in Eastern Canada and home to the most southern tip in Nova Scotia located on beautiful Cape Sable Island.
Uncover our historic charm and our mysterious past, and maybe discover your own connection to our wonderful Municipality. We encourage you to come explore, relax, and enjoy your stay!
