Joined to the mainland by a short causeway, Graves Island Provincial Park is typical of many of the small islands found along Nova Scotia's Atlantic coast. This quiet ocean-side campground has long been a popular vacation spot for Nova Scotians and visitors alike.
Park features a 2.1 km (1.3 mi.) looped trail through hardwoods and granite boulders left by retreating glaciers. Trail provides a pleasant walk to an attractive view of the coast. Site is adjacent a federal migratory bird sanctuary and near Thomas Raddall Provincial Park and Kejimkujik National Park Seaside Adjunct.
Overlooking Port Joli Harbour on Nova Scotia's South Shore with over 650 ha (1,600 acres) the park offers visitors a wide range of outdoor experiences, including hiking, camping, picnicing, sight-seeing, or relaxing on the beach.
