Smuggler’s Cove Provincial Park located in Meteghan (7651 Highway 1) in the Yarmouth and Acadian Shores region is a picturesque picnic park with tables in an open field overlooking a small cove and cave. Smuggler’s Cove was a prime location for the smuggling of liquor during prohibition in the 1920s. The cove fills with ocean water during high tide and becomes inaccessible but can be reached during low tide. There is a path to viewing platforms, and visitors may proceed down the 80-step stairway to the ocean floor during low tide. Interpretive panels on site explain the history of the area.
