The Ovens Natural Park




The Ovens Natural Park is one of my favourite places to visit (even though the entry fee is a little too steep in my opinion). Cost aside, it truly is magnificent. The Ovens got it's name from the natural sea caves along the coastline that people referred to as "the ovens". Not sure why they decided to call caves ovens but they did. There's a lot of history surrounding The Ovens - mainly to do with the gold rush in 1861. But enough about that. The best part about this trail in my opinion is the scenery!





One of the coolest things about this park is that they built staircases going down into some of the caves so you can explore!




The water next to the cliffs was a gorgeous blue/green colour. Absolutely stunning.



















If for whatever reason you find yourself wanting to visit Nova Scotia please be sure to add this to your list of destinations! You will not be disappointed! Unless of course you have a fear of heights, cliffs or questionable concrete staircases- then I would skip this one.


Q. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A SEA CAVE?

  1. It's a stunning place but I reckon some of those steep drops would have me feeling really nervous!
