Cape Sharp Light
Follow Hwy 102 from Halifax to Truro, exiting left (exit #15) onto Hwy 104 towards New Brunswick. Exit right onto Glenholme Loop, then turn right onto old highway. Follow a short distance and exit left on Route 2 towards Parrsboro. At Parrsboro, continue through town past Partridge Island and onto gravel road towards Black Rock. At the bottom of a hill that veers right look for a left turn onto the old lighthouse access road, which is no more than a cart track now.
Park and follow the old access road up over the hill to the Cape Sharp Light. There is a spectacular view across the Minas Basin (at it's most narrow point) towards Cape Blomidon. Look for the rip tide during a tide change. A nice spot to watch the sun setting over the Minas Basin.
