Getting Here

Five Islands Ocean Resort is a short 4 to 5 hours from the U.S. border and a mere 80-90 minutes from the airports in Halifax and Moncton or the bridge to P.E.I.; what’s more, it is the ideal central base from which to experience the breathtaking panoramic views at the point where the waters divide (Cape Chignecto), see the beauty and the power of the currents at Cape D’Or, experience the tidal bore in Truro and most of all, enjoy the amazing phenomena of the tides on a day to day basis as you enjoy the great outdoors, relax, tour the many attractions in the area and partake in a host of sporting, entertainment or cultural events at our beautiful resort campground.  Or if R & R is your goal, sit back and enjoy the amazing beauty and tranquility of our view while the rest of the family enjoys the excellent facilities and organized events at the park.
