When we visited Nova Scotia, there was so much to see and we barely scratched the surface, exploring the southwest region. Atlantica Hotel & Marina is on Oak Island, about a hour from Halifax. Sitting on Mahone Bay, the view is always special. They were nice enough to share a recipe. We would love to spend a few days there and experience its spa.
