Brier Island, in the southwest area of Nova Scotia at the entrance to the Bay of Fundy, is known for its exceptional whale watching, birdwatching and nature. Rare plants, interesting geology, shoreline trails, scenic lighthouses and friendly people are all a part of this special island. The island is 4 by 1.5 miles and home to a fishing village called Westport. There are restaurants, a general store, gift shops, beaches, library, churches and more. Captain Joshua Slocum, the first man to sail around the world alone (1890s) grew up on Brier Island and wrote about the place in his book Sailing Alone Around the World. To get to Brier Island you have to take two car ferries, the first one from Digby Neck to Long Island (5 minute crossing) and then the second one from Long Island to Brier Island (8 minute crossing). You may feel like you are at the end of the world or the beginn
ing as you experience this unique island location.
