  • Boondocks Restaurant anchors one end of the cove. Several multi-colored buildings line the shore selling a variety of items. Nice sandy area during low tide times.  more »
  • Nice store with in house artists and many works of art for sale. Artwork of local areas $10.00 plus makes nice souvenir. Short boardwalk. Could be very touristy in prime months.  more »
  • This place is quite amazing. A small fishing village right in the middle of a large metropolitan city . lots of little shops we can get some food overlooking the harbour real pretty.  more »

  • Great spot. Love that it just on outskirts of dartmouth. Wonderful for kids and it helps to have ice and shops right there.
  • Pretty good area, the boardwalk is nice but unsurprisingly most of the shops of fairly expensive but that's to be expected in a tourist area. Good to see if you're not a local.
  • Fisherman's Cove is a great place to visit for both tourists and locals! There's often live music on the boardwalk, lots of fun shops and the food is always great! The boardwalk around the beach is a personal favorite. The views are breathtaking at every step. A perfect city getaway. Just take a moment to breath in the refreshing sea breeze, and let Nova Scotia sink in.
  • It is a quaint fisherman village with colourful shops and colourful​ people in the shops. You can catch a ride to Mcnab's island from here, meet with amazing artist and if you are lucky you will see the oriates and mermaids!
  • Love this spot. Can go walking on the boardwalk no matter what the season is. Although this is a spot more for the summer as most of the business are closed expect for 2. Love just being able to get a drink and watch the water and relax.
