    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.

    Cute spot but under utilized. There was less here than we expected, and then had trouble getting a taxi to pick us up to take us back to downtown Halifax. This is more a community park than a tourist attraction.

    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!
