Sampson Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada

Sampson Cove is nestled in the francophone fishing village of predominately French-speaking Petit-de-Grat, offering Acadian heritage, artistic, musical and community cultural events. The village of Petie-de-Grat  holds its annual Festival Acadien.

A nine-mile long hiking trail leads from the edge of the community
around the coast to Heath Head and Cap Rouge, to several beaches, ponds and coves and provides a fine view of off-shore Green Island Lighthouse.
